"American Girls" series for boys? @ 04:31 pm

teramichelle:

I feel like such a bad lib asst.! I had a parent ask me about a series her friend had recommended, of a "boy version" of the popular American Girl series books. I'd never heard anything about this type of book being offered, and a quick peruse of the American Girls site indicated nothing of the sort. I know there are other historical fiction beginning chapter books such as the "I Am America" series, but I haven't heard anything about an "American Girls" for boys and wasn't able to come up with anything. Anyone heard anything about this? Or was this patron's friend just confused?

Hm, the only other series I can think of is "Dear America." Sounds like the patron needs to get some clarification from her friend on this one!

Sorry I'm getting to this so late, but I don't see any reference on any of the American Girl websites to an "American Boy" spin-off either. I would guess that she means I Am America or Dear America, but that's all I've got.
