This book has five separate short stories from the Felicity: An American Girl series that I’ve been reading for the “American Girls” podcast that I’ve been listening to by Allison Horrocks and Mary Mahoney. I will be reviewing all the stories individually, on their own book pages (because they are individual books... this was just a nice collection I got for cheap). As a collective whole, however, I did like the stories. Some of them were a little ridiculous (but it is Felicity, of course), but ...more

I'm writing this review too long after reading the book to remember details, but I do generally think the stories were cute.

These little editions are so great for the short stories. I acquired all of them this summer, and it's nice to have the stories that were added just to make complete sets. These build on the Felicity character, but are a bit lacking in depth.

This was a gift from my friend Sarah, and it was a fun little read! I read all the regular Felicity stories when I was a kid, but had never read the short stories. It was a real treat to get to read new-to-me Felicity stories that I'd never read before! :)

Very good collection of stories. Sweet and simple and make one feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Met the author in NYC and got a signed copy at American Girl Place. She loved hearing how I was from Williamsburg! :)
