The new titles
at www.pleasantco.com gives us more information on the historical characters' short story collections
coming out this fall, including pictures of the covers and selected pages. The website also
reveals that in order for all the historical characters to have five stories in their collections, the three
characters that did not have five previously published short stories (Felicity, Kit, and Kaya)
will have new stories in their collections! The new short stories will be: Felicity's Valentine,
Kit's Winning Ways, Kit Uses Her Head, Kit and Millie Ride Again, Kaya and the Beavers,
Kaya and the Flood, Kaya and the Injured Dog,
and Kaya and the Grandmothers.
great to find out that the historical characters' short stories aren't going permanently out of
print and that there will be new short stories too!

Society Gets New Look!
I hope everyone likes the new look that I have designed for the Society's site. I hope it is easily
readable and involves less scrolling and fits in everyone's window better than the last layout
did. If you encounter any problems with the layout or broken links, please
and let me know. A huge thanks to my wonderful friend Meg for letting me have webspace so
that the Society's site does not have any ads or go down when too many people access it, as it
used to on my free Yahoo! GeoCities site.
This Issue's Character Feature
In this issue, I am featuring tidbits about Felicity, Josefina, and Kirsten's times from The American Girls
. (Kaya was not yet released when the handbook was published.) Felicity,
Josefina, and Kirsten have been featured before, but this is all new. Enjoy!
