Meet Felicity: An American Girl : 1774 (The American Girls Collection, Bk 1)
Meet Felicity An American Girl 1774 - The American Girls Collection, Bk 1 Author:Valerie Tripp Meet Felicity Merriman, a spunky, spritely nine-year-old girl who lives in Williamsburg, Virginia, in 1774, just before the Revolutionary War. She grows impatient doing "sitting down kinds of things," like practicing her stitchery or handwriting. She would much rather be riding horses. That's why Felicity is so excited to hear about a new horse ... more »in town. But the horse is owned by Jiggy Nye, the cruel tanner who beats his animals. Felicity sneaks off to visit the horse and falls in love with the copper-colored mare, which she names Penny. When Penny's life is in danger, Felicity knows she must help.
Felicity is the first in a series of beautifully illustrated books about growing up in colonial America.
American Girl celebrates a girl's inner star - that little whisper inside that encourages her to stand tall, reach high, and dream big. We take pride and care in helping girls become their very best today, so they'll grow up to be the women who make a difference tomorrow.
