Gr. 3-5. Books in the American Girl Mysteries series, set in various periods of American history, feature familiar characters from the earlier doll-based book series. In this adventure, Felicity hears disturbing news about the theft of a neighbor's horse and, more seriously, about the threat of British and Loyalist troops raiding nearby plantations. With her father in Williamsburg working for the Patriot cause, Felicity takes it upon herself to protect her home, her family, and her horse by engaging in some detective work. Like the previous stories about Felicity, this one features an appealing heroine and a well-developed period setting. Experienced genre readers will find the clues rather thickly dispersed, but children new to mysteries will enjoy having their suspicions confirmed. A "Looking Back" section provides information about the period. The combined appeal of the genre, the main character, and the attractive jacket will definitely invite an audience. The paperback edition's smooth, thick pages and relatively sturdy binding make it a good choice for libraries considering the purchase of multiple copies. Carolyn Phelan
