Beatrice Thomson doesn't mind her funny nickname. It makes her feel special, which is important when you're the middle child: not the smartest, or the best-looking, or a boy. The Depression years are hard ones, with her father out of work and the family struggling to make ends meet. But irrepressible Booky, with her big imagination and even bigger plans, can tackle anything. A sharp-eyed kid can find plenty to see and do without spending a cent. Even if it does get her into scrapes!… (more)

This delightful omnibus version of Bernice Thurman Hunter's Booky trilogy was published in 1998 by Scholastic Canada. It not only contains all three novels in their entirety, That Scatterbrain Booky, With Love From Booky and As Ever, Booky, including all of the wonderful archival photographs and illustrations, it also features an additional short story titled Visitors from Saskatoon (a surprise visit from Dave and Mary Atlas on New Year's Eve 1933). Although personally, I somewhat prefer having and reading the trilogy as single books, Booky: A Trilogy is handy and complete (and at least in Canada, it is in current print and easier to purchase at a relatively inexpensive price than the three single novels, which are now only available second-hand, and depending on condition and availability, can be rather expensive).
