I have this book and also the Felicity doll and I really enjoy the American Girl books and found this to be my favorite out of them all. The story shows that back in the 1700's girls had the same problems and adventures that they do today.I reccommend this book to any young girl.

I live in Williamsburg just like Felicity and I liked the book I think that we could be good friends if she lived today. If you want to have a good time reading, read this book. Felicity has a little sister just like me. Felicity wears colonial clothes and doesn't have TV, but she works all day with her Mom and trys to learn her lessons. There are many books about other girls Molly and Samatha are also fun but they lived a long time ago in a place far from where I live. END

I am ten years old and I just read this book. I thought that it was fun and exciting. I'd like to have a horse like Felicity's horse; Penny!

I received this book when I bought my Felicity doll from American Girl.

In this book you meet Felicity Merriman who is a bright, funny girl living in the year 1774.

Felicity is quite bored with her routine; sewing, cooking, learning how to be a proper young lady, etc.
One day she sees a horse playing out in the pasture. She quickly becomes friends with it, and names it Penny. Later she finds out that the horse belongs to a cruel man named Jiggy Nye who has spent time in jail for animal cruelty.

Felicity knows the horse isn't hers, but that doesn't stop her from riding it one day. Jiggy Nye sees her, and tells her that anyone who can ride her may have her. Felicity then hatches a plan to steal the horse, which then backfires.

As this is a childrens book, everything does turn out ok in the end.

Format: Paperback
This is the first in the American Girls Short Stories series about Felicity Merriman, a nine-year-old girl living in the America of 1774. In this book, Felicity is bored with her constrained "girl's" world, where her time is spent wearing cumbersome dresses and making small, uniform stitches. Excitement enters, when she meets the knacker's new horse. The knacker, Jiggy Nye, is a cruel man who mistreats the horse. Here Felicity learns that sometime you must work for what you love, and sometimes you must give it up.

The final chapter is a fascinating and highly informative look into life in 1774. This book lives up to the excellence that characterizes most American Girls books. My daughter and I greatly enjoyed it, and we recommend it to you.

I owned a hard copy of this book as a girl, and loved it then too. The book combines an engaging story with a nice look at what life was like in Virginia just before the American Revolution. Felicity wants to rescue a horse from being abused by an alcoholic tanner. At the end, as in all the historical American Girls books, is a "Looking Back" section that describes a lot of features of everyday life in colonial Virginia.

There have been minor changes to the dialogue since its original publication in 1991; specifically, Jiggy Nye's language is a bit less "colorful" than it once was. Other than that, this is the same book I fell in love with 20 years ago. If your children like horses or history, they will love this book!

... This update is over the first six books about Felicity Merriman, a spunky young redhead in colonial America, in the dawn of the Revolutionary War. All six books were written by Valerie Tripp. Felicity lives in Virginia with her mother, father, and her little brother and sister. Her father is a shopkeeper, and his young apprentice lives with them as well - he is older than Felicity, but they become good friends. Felicity also befriends a girl her age whose family of Loyalists comes over from England. Felicity's family are Patriots, and this difference does cause some tension between the girls at one point. ...
