Synopsis

‘My mother had kept her own copy of What Katy Did and I read it myself when I was about seven. It immediately became one of my favourite books’ Jacqueline Wilson

Designed to appeal to book lovers everywhere, the Macmillan Collector’s Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector’s Library are books to love and treasure.

A treasured children’s classic, Susan Coolidge’s What Katy Did is a vivid story of childhood bravery with a feisty heroine at its heart. This edition features original illustrations by Addie Ledyard and an introduction by award-winning children’s author Jacqueline Wilson.

Twelve-year-old Katy is a dreamer. She invents exciting games, faraway lands and imagines that one day she’ll be charming and graceful. But in the meantime she gets into all kinds of mischief . . . until one day a terrible accident happens and life as Katy knows it turns upside down. Can Katy’s boisterous courage keep her dreams alive?

It opens such a vivid window into a domestic world that we have lost: full of aunts and cousins, innumerable siblings and clearly drawn moralities
