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
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!
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
Katy speaks with a charm and directness that remains as fresh as when it was written
