In this first book of The Peggy Perch series, our friend Betsy Bobcat must make one of those difficult decisions.


When the forest children of Glen Lake decide to play a trick on the elderly substitute teacher, Betsy Bobcat has to make a difficult choice.

Should she go along with the prank or should she risk being teased again for being a “Goody-Goody?”


With Peggy Perch's help, Betsy learns that by sharing her feelings with family and friends, she can reach a decision that is true to her heart.


Meet Peggy Perch.  Peggy has learned a lot from the fish in her school. She knows that little fish — and little children — are very smart, but sometimes they have to make difficult decisions.
