The Prissy Sissy Tea Party Series of children's books is centered around tea parties. The setting is a small town in the South. Sissy's parents own a private school, L'Ecole Par Excellence and a bed and breakfast inn known as Magnolia Manor.
The main character is Sissy, an eight year old, who is the product of a southern mother who believes strongly in maintaining the social graces, customs, and traditions of the past and a retired father who was a military officer, but is now headmaster of their private school. Sissy blends her mother's influence with her own travel experiences and exposure to various cultures made possible because of her father's military assignments. She then tells her story in her own Prissy Sissy way.
Her 4 best friends are Lauren, Zack, Alex, and Zeus, her Doberman Pinscher. There are several exchange students attending the school who will appear as special guests when a tea party focuses on their homeland.
