What Katy Did 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
