9780141326719: What Katy Did (Puffin Classics)

What Katy Did by Susan Coolidge is a classic much loved by adults and children alike.

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; for when she is grown up she wants to do something grand . . .

A wonderful, family story, with an inspiring introduction from the hugely popular Cathy Cassidy.

***PLUS a behind-the-scenes journey, including an author profile, a guide to who's who, activities and more . . .***

Susan Coolidge (1835-1905) was born Sarah Chauncey Woolsey in Ohio, USA. She worked as a nurse during the American Civil War, after which she started to write. She is best known for her classic children's novel What Katy Did , which was modelled on her own family, and its four sequels: What Katy Did at School, What Katy Did Next, Clover and In the High Valley.

'The Puffin Classics series is a perfect marriage of the old and the new. Enjoy some of the best books from the past and find out why and how they inspired some of the best writers of the present' - Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading4kids

Review:

"This book really got me hooked while she struggled and was happy. I recommend it to all children and I hope you enjoy it too!!!" (Alice Brown, aged 10 Guardian)

"This tale of a boisterous child coming into maturity reads with the same zest and insight as it would have done when it was first published over 130 years ago" ( Guardian)

"So what makes these different to any other set of classics? In a moment of inspiration Random House had the bright idea of actually asking Key stage 2 children what extra ingredients they could add to make children want to read. And does it work? Well, put it this way...my 13-year-old daughter announced that she had to read a book over the summer holiday and, without any prompting, spotted The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas...and proceeded to read it! Now, if you knew my 13-year-old daughter, you would realise that this is quite remarkable. She reads texts, blogs and tags by the thousand - but this is the first book she has read since going to high school, so all hail Vintage Classics!" ( National Association for the Teaching of English)

"A book about a long lanky tomboy with tangled hair, a crazy imagination and a whole heap of good intentions. Katy Carr wasn't perfect - far from it - but she was perfect for me!" (Cathy Cassidy)
