What Katy Did at School

Author: Susan Coolidge Narrator: Karen Savage Release Date: 01/11/2021

Tall, gangly, and tomboyish Katy was badly injured in an accident which has left her partially paralysed. This has been tough on the wild girl, who is no longer able to play with her siblings or roam around nature the way she used to. But Katy has now regained some feelings in her legs, and can finally start to slowly walk again. Her father feels she is healthy enough to start school, so he sends her off to be educated. It is with mixed emotions that Katy goes. Starting school will be exciting, but won't she miss her siblings too much to learn anything? This is the second book in the Katy series, which has been elected one of the best children's books by its readers. The series takes place in 1860's Ohio. - Susan Coolidge (1835-1905) was an American children's' book author, best known for her novel 'What Katy Did' (1872), which was inspired by her own childhood. She started writing after working as a nurse during the American Civil War.

What Katy Did

Author: Susan Coolidge Narrator: Karen Savage Release Date: 01/01/2017

'To-morrow I will begin, thought Katy.' Twelve-year-old Katy Carr desperately wants to be good. But being a wild and hot-headed tomboy, it seems so much easier to start being good tomorrow than it does today. Even when her kind and patient invalid cousin comes to visit, Katy‘s resolution to change only lasts a few hours. But soon she will have much more in common with her cousin than she wished and it will confine her to her room perhaps forever. Will it make her finally able to uphold her promise? Author Susan Coolidge‘s `What Katy did‘ (1872) was published by the same publisher as `Little Women‘ by Louisa May Alcott, and speaks to the same audience of people who enjoy well-written girl characters. The most recent film adaptation saw Alison Pill, Michael Cera and Megan Follows (`Anne of Green Gables‘), and the book has made its mark on popular culture too, lending its name to a The Libertines song and two episodes of the hit show `Lost‘.

What Katy Did

Author: Susan Coolidge Narrator: Laurel Lefkow Release Date: 01/03/2008

Meet Katy Carr. She's Impulsive, gangly, adventurous, awkward and brave; she loves clambering over fences, sitting on roofs, making up games or going for picnics with her five brothers and sisters (much to the horror of her Aunt Izzie). But when she falls from a swing, she suddenly has to cope with being stuck indoors - maybe for ever... What Katy Did is fresh, lively, funny and moving; and Katy herself is a warm and loving character that readers have taken to their hearts for over a hundred and thirty years.

What Katy Did

Author: Susan Coolidge Narrator: Barbara Caruso Release Date: 01/02/2000

Ever since her mother died, 12-year-old Katy has attempted to look after her five younger brothers and sisters. Her father Dr. Carr depends on her to set a good example while he takes care of patients. But no matter how hard Katy tries to be good, trouble always finds her. She tears all her dresses and breaks the dishes. She forgets to do her homework, so she gets bad grades. And her quick temper hurts the feelings of those she loves the most. But the day she refuses to listen when Aunt Izzie forbids her to use the new swing changes her life forever. Novelist Susan Coolidge based tall, impatient Katy on herself, and the other fun-loving characters on her own family. Reminiscent of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women, this classic story of an irrepressible young girl learning some of life's most difficult lessons has charmed readers for generations. Barbara Caruso provides the perfect voice for Katy as she savors triumphs and faces disappointments.
