What Katy Did

Susan Coolidge
Illustrated by Deanna Staffo
Introduced by Amanda Craig

The ‘longest girl that was ever seen’, with her hair in a tangle, dress torn and bootlaces trailing, Katy is one of the most lovable heroines ever to leap from the pages of a book.

‘She was a dear, loving child ... and made bushels of good resolutions every week of her life, only unluckily she never kept any of them’

Susan Coolidge evokes an idyllic picture of 19th-century America, where the children have a meadow and wood to play in, make dens in the hayloft and hold their own fêtes. Times may have changed, but Katy and her family seem oddly contemporary.
