About

From What Katy Did: “Katy Carr is untidy, tall and gangly, and lives with her brothers and sisters planning for the day when she will be “beautiful and beloved, and amiable as an angel”. An accidental fall from a swing seems to threaten her hopes for the future, but Katy struggles to overcome her difficulties with pluck, vitality and good humour.”

This beautifully presented slipcase includes all 3 of this wonderful classic children’s trilogy: What Katy Did, What Katy Did at School, and What Katy Did Next.

What Katy Did

Katy Carr is untidy, tall and gangly, and lives with her brothers and sisters planning for the day when she will be “beautiful and beloved, and amiable as an angel”. An accidental fall from a swing seems to threaten her hopes for the future, but Katy struggles to overcome her difficulties with pluck, vitality and good humour.

What Katy Did at School

The classic sequel to What Katy Did, in which Katy, now recovered from her long illness, goes to boarding school for a year with her sister Clover. It is a compelling tale of the intrigues of life at the New England girls boarding school which Katy attends. Her trials and adventures are all interwoven with a sense of fun and gently ironic good humour.

What Katy Did Next

Europe beckoned more brilliantly now that they were fairly embarked on their journey. The sun shone, the lake was a beautiful, dazzling blue, and Katy said to herself, "After all, a year is not very long, and how happy I am going to be!"' When Mrs Ashe discovers that her visiting nephew has scarlet fever, she sends her young daughter Amy to stay with the Carr family. There, Amy develops a strong attachment to Katy, who treats her like a little sister. Mrs Ashe, grateful for the kindness Katy has shown, invites her to join them on a year-long trip around Europe. Katy is at first reluctant - a year is a long time to be away from her family - but soon she gets swept up in the adventure, which takes her from the historic (but rainy) London streets to the beautiful cities of Nice, Paris and Naples. And perhaps Katy, now a young woman, will discover love.
