Betty MacDonald fan club fans,

Did you know that Mary Bard's Best Friends series  for children have been more successful in some countries than Betty MacDonald's Nancy and Plum and The Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle series?

I agree with author Peter Sieruta. 

The Betty MacDonald Fans enjoy these interviews very much.

Betty MacDonald's sister Alison Bard Burnett, her daughter Alison Beck and Betty MacDonald fan club founder Wolfgang Hampel are really great.

Interview with Alison Bard Burnett and her daughter Alison Beck:

Peter D. Sieruta, author of Heartbeats and other stories:

I heard Wolfgang Hampel's Betty MacDonald Fan Club audio interview with Alison Beck who came and stayed with her aunt Mary Bard as she wrote Best friends at school. Mary’s own daughters were grown by that point, and she needed a real live girl to serve as a “consultant” when writing about young Suzie and CoCo. Alison Beck recalled that magical summer of 1960 and how the sunlight filled her aunt’s window-lined office during the day as they worked together; in the evening they gathered around the television to watch JFK accept the Democratic nomination for president. Alison Beck remembered how grown-up she felt that summer, helping to create book and discussing politics and current events with a special aunt.

Many fans adore the new outstanding website of beloved Betty MacDonald fan club honor member Mr. Tigerli.

Surprise, surprise!

Many ESC fans from all over the world are so very sad because we lost Joy Fleming - one of the best singers ever.
