Her head is full of schemes and one day she plans to do something important. But a great deal is to happen to Katy before that time comes...

  • "Twelve-year-old Katie, living with her father, aunt, and five siblings in a small town in the 1870's, constantly makes and breaks resolutions to be a kind and generous person like her invalid Cousin Helen, but when she herself is bedridden after an accident, Katie finds her cousin's example very hard to follow."

But when a terrible accident threatens Katy's grand plans for the future, she must draw on her good humour and courage to see her through."@en

  • "Tomboyish Katy Carr is tall, gangling, and full of mischief. Constantly scheming and playing with her brothers and sisters, 12-year-old Katy dreams that one day she will be 'beautiful and beloved, and amiable as an angel'. But goodness and obedience don't come easily to Katy, who had promised to be a good stand-in mother to her younger siblings but finds it difficult to stick to her word. When her bedridden cousin Helen comes to stay, Katy becomes enchanted with her as the living embodiment of goodness and light. On the day Helen leaves, Katy devotes herself to be a shining example of Helen's behaviour. But quickly the best of intentions go awry, and a day of mischief ends in an accident: a serious fall from a swing that seems to threaten Katy's grand hopes for the future. But by focusing on the good humour and strength she witnessed in Helen, Katy eventually learns to overcome her difficulties in the 'School of Pain', and to practice strength, patience, and hope. Originally published in 1872, and often paired with The secret garden and Pollyanna, What Katy did is the classic American tale of childhood, love, hope, and 'doing good'."
  • "Katy Carr is untidy, tall and gangling and lives with her brothers and sisters."@en
  • "Times were tough for tomboys in nineteenth-century America. In an era during which the prescribed notions of proper behavior for women and girls were much stricter than they are today, the rough-and-tumble types who couldn't get enough of team sports and the great outdoors were often shunned. This fun and engaging juvenile novel is a great introduction to the period for young readers and adults alike."@en

Then, one terrible day, Katy has an accident, but it is still a long, eventful time before she learns to be as loving and as patient as her beautiful invalid cousin Helen."@en
