Felicity Saves the Day

by Valerie Tripp

I was really dreading reading this one. I'm prejudiced against stories in which children "save the day". In my experience, such stories usually feature talented, precocious children and insipid adults. Fortunately, this book didn't fulfill my worst fears. For one thing, there wasn't any great crisis. Most of the book is really just an account on how pleasant it is to visit one's grandfather's plantation in the summertime. A problem does arise and, in another world, the situation could have turned quite ugly. But in the world of the American Girls, things don't seem to get that bad. Anyway, it's another fine example of waiting room material that your kids might enjoy.
