What Katy Did | [Susan Coolidge]

What Katy Did

Lorelei King reads Susan Coolidge's classic tale about feisty Katy and her adventures. Twelve-year-old Katy lives with her father, Aunt Izzy, and five younger brothers and sisters in the little town of Burnet. Tall, tomboyish and with a head full of plans and dreams, she just can't help getting into scrapes - she loses her homework, is late for school and gets her siblings in trouble when she persuades them to stay up past bedtime playing noisy games.

Publisher's Summary

Lorelei King reads Susan Coolidge's classic tale about feisty Katy and her adventures. Twelve-year-old Katy lives with her father, Aunt Izzy, and five younger brothers and sisters in the little town of Burnet. Tall, tomboyish and with a head full of plans and dreams, she just can't help getting into scrapes - she loses her homework, is late for school and gets her siblings in trouble when she persuades them to stay up past bedtime playing noisy games.

But she always means well - and when sweet, angelic Cousin Helen comes to visit, Katy is inspired by her serenity and kindness. When a terrible accident occurs and Katy's life changes more than she could ever have imagined, she will need all her courage and patience to put her good intentions into practice.

    Story
    "Sweet and gentle book."
    Would you consider the audio edition of What Katy Did to be better than the print version?

    I have no idea. I read the book at Girl Scout camp when I was 8 or 9. It was part of the camp library and when it was time to go home, I surreptitiously exchanged one of my books for What Katy Did. My purloined copy is somewhere in a box since I've been dragging it around with me for 47 years, but I haven't read it since I was a teenager.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of What Katy Did?

    There are so many! The scene where Katy's little sister invites a schoolfriend over brought back childhood memories of my own.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    That would be spoiling the book for others.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the narration and the way that the different voices made the characters seem alive. And, the book was written in a time when life was so different and medical knowledge so limited... it had me looking things up. Mostly, I wish I had a little girl to share the book with. It would be lovely to share the softer ways of the past with a child.
