Happy Birthday Felicity May 11, 2006
Any girl who loves spring time would love this book. The title of this book is Happy Birthday Felicity and the author of this book is Valerie Tripp. The main characters are Felicity and Grandfather. Grandfather is generous, and understands what is imnportant. Felicity is a spunky, spiritual colonial girl, growing up just before the American Revolution in 1774. The setting is in Willamsburg, Virgina and the problem of the story is Felicity got a guitar from her Grandfather and she wasn't allowed to take it outside. But she did, and ended up getting it wet and now she has to take it back to where she got it.
In the beginning of the story Felicity and Elizabeth,her friend, were making fun of Elizabeth's sister (Annabelle) while she was playing the guitar and singing. Next, Felicity heard soldiers talking about a plan and when she told her parents, they didn't believe her so she had to fix it herself.
The theme of this book is always obey because you may have a problem like Felicity. This book reminded me of myself because I play the guitar just like Felicity was learning to. Girls of all ages would enjoy this book.

A great Felicity book Jan 18, 2004
Happy Birthday, Felicity! is one of the best American Girl books. Felicity is turning ten years old, and Grandfather has come to visit. He gives her Grandmother's guitar, but when she is told not to take it out of the house, she disobeys her parents and Grandfather. They are so angry at her that they refuse to believe Felicity when she tells them of a message she overheard that means danger for Williamsburg! I'll let the rest be a surprise, but don't worry, the book has a happy ending.
