Item description for Meet Molly: An American Girl (American Girls Collection) by Valerie Tripp, Keith Skeen & Renee Graef...

Overview
While her father is away fighting in World War II, Molly finds her life full of change as she eats terrible vegetables from the victory garden and plans revenge on her brother for ruining her Halloween.

Publishers Description
For Molly McIntire, life seems full of change. It's 1944 and the world is at war. Her father is far away caring for wounded soldiers. Her mother is busy working for the Red Cross. And everyone in America is so serious and practical that glamorous Halloween costumes are hard to get. Molly's special hula skirt is a huge success--until Ricky, her pesty big brother, plays a mean trick. Molly and her friends are determined to get back at him. One mean trick leads to another until the fighting goes too far.

Reviews - What do customers think about Meet Molly: An American Girl (American Girls Collection)?

Meet Molly: A nine-year-old girl living in the year 1944  Jun 20, 2007
Molly McIntire is a down to earth kind of girl living at home with her mother, two brothers, and her older sister in the year 1944. War has broken out, and Molly's father must travel to England to be a doctor to the injured soldiers.

Halloween is coming up and Molly and her two friends want to dress up as hula girls. They make homemade hula costumes, and spend the night having fun. As they begin to make their way home, Molly's older brother, Ricky plays a mean trick on the girls, which results in Molly getting revenge.

The book ends with a lesson about fighting and friendship. Of course I always loved the, Take a Look Back part of the book. At the end of the book, there is about five pages dedicated to teaching the reader about girls growing up in the year 1944.

Once again this is a great book in the American Girl series. I believe I first read this book when I was nine-years-old, way back in 1993! I still love this book, and find myself reading it once a year.

Molly is Magnificent  Dec 28, 2004
Molly is a girl whose father is serving in the army during World War 2. Living in this time has its own problems. For instance, Molly's mom helps with the war effort by planting a victory garden. Molly is typical of any girl during that time period. As is standard with the American Girls series, Molly's character is consistent with the historic facts of the times. Living during a time of change and war in America as a history lesson is explore well through this book for girls. Also recommended with the theme of living during a time of change and war in America is Lucy and the Liberty Quilt of the Gifted Girls Series, which captures September 11.
 
Meet Molly  Jul 25, 2004
Meet Molly is a great book for students to get an inside about WWII without the gruesome "war" parts. The third to fifth grade girls would really enjoy this book and the series of American Girls. This historical fiction follows a series so students can learn more about the time period. Valerie Tripp allows readers to get involved in Molly's life, where dad is away and mom is working. Home is not the way it used to be. Valerie Tripp uses real information to verification on the time period. Tripp lets the readers see that times were tough and Molly goes on with everyday life through the war time. The reader can envision himself/herself being Molly and dealing with older brothers and sisters as well. The description of the setting and activities is what makes the story so well.
