Whay Katy Did by Susan M.Coolidge

This book was mine as a grade five student. I did have the other two in the series but they are probably still up at Dad's house. What Katy Did is a children's book written by Susan Coolidge with the pen name of Sarah Chauncy Woolsey. It follows the adventures of Katy Carr and her family, who live in the fictional town of Burnet in the 1860s. Katy is a tall tomboy who doesn't care too much for appearances. She is forever getting into scrapes but wishing to be beautiful and beloved. When a terrible accident makes her an invalid, her illness and recovery gradually teach her to be as good and kind as she has always wanted. Two sequels follow Katy as she grows up - What Katy Did at School and What Katy Did Next. Coolidge modelled Katy on her own childhood self, and the other 'Little Carrs' on her brothers and sisters. I have just downloaded the Katy series from Amazon Kindle, it is available for free.
