The Lovereading4Kids comment
A timeless story about a young girl who wants to be sweet natured, good and easy to love. Somehow she never is. Instead, her dress is always torn, her hair is always a tangle and she doesn’t care whether she’s thought good or not. But then Katy has a terrible accident and has time to find out what really matters to her and to change. A trifle moral in parts, this is none-the-less a memorable story about a strong willed but likeable heroine. This edition comes with a superb introduction by Cathy Cassidy who tells us how she came to love this story and what a profound influence it had on her. There’s also lots of additional material at the end of the book including an author profile, a guide to who’s who plus many activities beyond the book.
What Katy Did (with an introduction by Cathy Cassidy) by Susan Coolidge
Katy Carr intends to be beautiful and beloved and as sweet as an angel one day. For now, though, her hair is forever in a tangle, her dress is always torn and she doesn't care at all for being called 'good'. But then a terrible accident happens and Katy must find the courage to remember her daydreams and the delightful plans she once schemed.
This is a wonderful, family story, with an inspiring introduction from the hugely popular Cathy Cassidy.
