UPDATE!! We now know that there will be two new historical characters from American Girl this year and their names are…. Marie-Grace and CécileMeet Marie-Grace will be authored by Sarah Masters Buckey and Meet Cécile will be authored by Denise Lewis Patrick. What we don’t know is if one of the dolls is a “friend” doll, what their story line will be or what they will look like, but as more clues are unveiled, we will post them here!

And FYI – the titles of the books were found here.

PREVIOUSLY POSTED:

Again, those Doll Diaries sleuths have uncovered more details about the upcoming American Girl Historical doll release. It looks like her books will be authored by Sarah Masters Buckey (books 1, 3 and 5) and Denise Lewis Patrick (books 2, 4 and 6) and all will be illustrated by Christine Kornacki. The books have a release date of August 2011.

Right now Amazon has the first book in the character’s series listed as New Historical Character Book 1 (American Girl) and it is available for pre-order.

So, rumor has it there will be two new historical characters and looking at the authors, it makes you wonder if we are finally going to get our new African American girl that we have been waiting so patiently for AG to make. Of course, this is just ME thinking out loud.

As I get more information, I will be sure to post it here.
