Understood Betsy is Fisher's best known work, a beloved chapter book for young children, published in 1916. It is about a young orphaned girl named Elizabeth Ann ("Betsy" for short) sent to live with her cousins in Vermont. [Illustration by Ada C. Williamson, page 163 from the 1917 edition.]
We feature it in our collection of Books for Young Readers.
