    1. I had rheumatic fever as a child and spent three months in hospital. This collection was brought to me and i fell in love with Katy. Not only with Katy but I began a love affair with reading which has lasted my whole life. I feel sorry for people who don't read - they miss out on meeting so many people and going to such wonderful places :)


    2. All That Katy Did by Susan CoolidgeKike Ogundipe10MRYAs a young child All That Katy Did was one of my favourite books after my grandmother gave me a copy she had found in an op shop. I read it multiple times but then it disappeared and I thought I had lost the book but to my surprise my friend had borrowed it for 4 years and to celebrate it's return to my bookshelf i read it again.My favourite thing about this book was Katy's transition from a loud and wild young girl into a mature and kind youn [...]


    3. An interesting range of time is covered by these three stories. They start out with Katy being very much the chi,d for whom things keep going wrong in the first book. In the second she is sent to boarding school with her next sister down - she is about 15/16. In the last book she is acting as a companion to a lady and her daughter on a trip to Europe - and is late teens /early twenties.There is a strong moral line to the boom about doing the best you can in difficult circumstances (even if you c [...]


    4. I would NOT recommend this edition of these books, and here is why: The three books are out of order. What Katy Did Next should come at the end, not in the middle.The second two books are absolutely peppered with typographical errors, most likely related to OCR. Most of these errors are painfully obvious and could have been eliminated by just one reading-over by anyone with half a brain. (ex: 50 for so, etc.)The good news: the books were quite fun to read. I definitely recommend them, especially [...]


    5. WHAT OTHER OLD SCHOOL GIRLS' BOOKS AUTHORS ARE WORTH READING? I LIKED THE WHAT KATY DID BOOKS. I DON'T KNOW THAT THEY'RE PARTICULARLY MEMEISH THOUGH.I REMEMBER THIS ONE BOOK CALLED "WHAT KATY DID" THAT TOOK PLACE IN THE 19TH CENTURY THAT FOR SOME REASON I WAS RLY INTO AS A KID, BUT WHEN I PICKED IT UP WHEN I WAS A LITTLE OLDER, I WAS PRETTY HORRIFIED TO REALIZE THE MORAL OF THE STORY WAS THAT SOMETIMES GOD HAS TO PARALYZE YOU TO MAKE YOU A BETTER PERSON.LOL I THINK I READ WHAT KATY DID NEXT, IN [...]


    6. It was so lovely to return to one of the books of my childhood, which I probably last read at the age of 9 or 10, and rediscover it. I'd forgotten most of the story, and I'd forgotten how gentle the stories are, in the best possible way. It's a view back into an innocent, middle-class, mid-1800s life - a different world. Katy is an enjoyable person to spend time with, and watching her grow up through the three books and become a confident young woman was a real pleasure. Definitely recommended.


    7. I really like What Katy Did because I thought it was soooo inspiring. Maybe it was for 9 years old little girl who dream to be big. But when 20 years later I finally got the sequels, What Katy Did Next and read it, I found it too normative and I miss the family. Katy itself is not enough to lighten the world.




    8. I am re-reading some childhood favourites - this one included - although now I am older (alot older!) the story does not catch me as much as it did. Maybe some books should only be read when young!
