American Girl: Ultimate Visual Guide and American Girl®: Ultimate Sticker Collection from book publisher DK. These title were published as a result of a new partnership between DK and American Girl® to create an exclusive collection of nonfiction books for children to launch in fall 2016.
DK's fully illustrated reference book tells the fascinating story of American Girl, from the original idea conceived by founder Pleasant T. Rowland to the development of its bestselling doll lines including Truly Me, Girl of the Year, Bitty Baby, and the beloved historical character line BeForever. Never-before-published anecdotes from the American Girl team abound each page, along with insider information about how the dolls are created, from concept to market.
