Isn’t Mini Maryellen adorable? She has such a sweet face. I really like her vest.
I found these pictures at American Girl Publishing, along with her book descriptions.
Book One: The One and Only
|Maryellen Larkin is nine years old and longs to stand out, but in a family with five brothers and sisters it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle! A painting mishap gains her some attention, but not the kind she’s been longing for. Being invited to stay in at recess and practice her handwriting earns Maryellen a new friend, but what does that mean for her old friendships? Then, Maryellen is wishing for a white Christmas like the ones in the movies (not very likely in Florida!). Will she find a way to make her dream come true?|
Book Two: Taking Off
|Turning ten is a big deal, and Maryellen Larkin wants to celebrate it in a very special way. Will she choose a western theme or decide on a superstar celebration, or will the event turn out to be something even Maryellen doesn’t expect? And which party participant surprises her the most? Then, Dad comes home with a silver surprise and big plans for a family vacation. On the trip, what will Maryellen discover about Joan and her wedding plans? What will Maryellen decide about her own plans and “flying high?”|
These sound interesting. The only thing I have to say is that AG always makes dolls with a “large” families (4-6 kids) in the historical dolls. Plenty of families have 6-8 kids today and many of them like dolls. I even learned last night that Josie Duggar (in a family of 19 kids) has AG dolls too! I just think that AG needs to recognize that there are people out there like that, and not just the people who have “perfect families”.
Anyways…. here’s the third book.
My sisters and I are going crazy! Truly Me comes out tomorrow!!
