The Twentieth American Girl Book by Kathleen Ernst


I've written 20 books for American Girl. The latest is Gunpowder and Tea Cakes: My Journey With Felicity. This choose your own path, multiple-ending story is about a modern girl who suddenly finds herself in Felicity's world during the American Revolution!

I love writing stories about strong, smart girls who meet challenges as best they can. And digging into the research is a lot of fun! Below you'll find information, photos, and stories about my American Girl books.
