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.

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. 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?

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 -- Christina Hardyment * The Times *
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
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 *
Katy speaks with a charm and directness that remains as fresh as when it was written -- Amanda Craig
This was one of my favourite books as a child. The children felt real enough to touch, and I fell head over heels in love with Katy. It's a book with an unstoppable heart -- Katherine Rundell
