    One thought on “Manners and Mischief: A Samantha Classic Volume 1”

    1. I loved the Samantha books as a kid. They're still entertaining. My favorite part was always the "Peek Into the Past" section, which included interesting photos, facts and illustrations from the time period. And the illustrations throughout the books were beautiful! I loved seeing Samantha wearing her various outfits from the doll collection. I would spend hours reading these books!Well, this new edition is a travesty. They've poorly spliced together three of the books, and have removed ALL ILLU [...]

    2. It's just Meet Samantha: An American Girl, Samantha Learns a Lesson: A School Story, and Samantha's Surprise: A Christmas Story mixed into one weird edition. Don't bother with it.

    3. This book is really good. I love her story and loved most of the characters!! My favorite part is when Samantha and her family exchange gifts and Samantha gets the nutcraker doll she always wanted. I would highly recomend this book!!

    4. Samantha was the American Girl I wanted to be as a child and re reading the books now kind of makes me see why. She got to wear fancy clothes, and have fancy dolls and she was a sweet girl. Now as an adult I see a little more of the darkness of the time and feel pretty icky about how even Grandmary looks down on the servants/lower class. I will be interested to see how the girls at bookclub discuss this one.

    5. There is nothing wrong with this American Girl book. Beforever is billed as "A classic featuring Samantha." It takes place in 1904; Samantha is an orphan living with her rich grandmother who is raising her to be a lady. She befriends Nellie, a servant girl about her own age in the house next door.The American Girl dolls are accompanied by books about them, introducing young readers to particular times in American history. Each of the first few dolls had a series of six books, covering similar as [...]

    6. I thought this was a good book about you should be kind to people even if they are poor like how Samantha became friends with Nellie. Even though, these books are different than the original series, I kind of like it. I like how they condense original into just couple of books - there only 2 or 3 books vs. 6 books. And there is a "Inside Samantha's World, which is similar to the "Looking Back" in the original series

    7. As with other books in this collection, I enjoyed the story and feel it has some valuable lessons for young girls. My critique of this book as it's companion, however, is that there are plot holes. Samantha makes a Christmas gift for Nellie, but we never see what Nellie thinks of that gift or if Nellie is able to give Samantha anything.

    8. Don't really enjoy these as much as the originals and I'm not entirely sure why. This book had two major storylines combined into one book.

    9. Love this book, read it to myself then to my sister who has to stay in bed due to illness. She enjoyed it as much as I.

    10. I've always loved the American Girl stories, but I'm kinda bummed they took out all the illustrations. They were all so beautiful!
