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 Cathy Cassidy, author of The Chocolate Box Girls and other hugely popular fiction for young teens.

***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
