I mean to do something grand. I don't know what, yet; but when I'm grown up I shall find out.

Katy Carr is the longest girl that was ever seen. She is all legs and elbows, and angles and joints. She tears her dress every day, hates sewing, and doesn't care a button about being called "good." Her head is full of schemes and one day she plans to do something important. But a great deal is to happen to Katy before that time comes.

About the Author:

Susan Coolidge (1835–1905) was an American children's author who based the Carr family from What Katy Did on her own siblings. She also wrote What Katy Did at School, What Katy Did Next, and Clover.

From AudioFile:

First published in 1872, this old-fashioned story espouses old-fashioned values brought to life with gentle good humor by Laurel Lefkow. Her reading perfectly captures the quirky, kind-hearted, if bossy, spirit of Katy, the oldest of six children being raised by their busy father, a doctor, with the help of his fussy sister, Aunt Izzy. In a marketplace full to bursting with edgy, issue-based children's books, this title is a quiet relief, a timeless story of perseverance and love overcoming adversity. Reminiscent of HEIDI and THE SECRET GARDEN, it's a comfort food of a book about secret hideouts and picnics and homemade valentines. Laurel Lefkow will softly lead the child or family listener into this beloved little treasure from a bygone era. D.G. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
