Meet the Author

Susan Coolidge was the pen name for Sarah Chauncey Woolsey who was born in 1835 into a wealthy and influential family in Ohio, USA. She spent much of her childhood in Connecticut after her family moved there in 1852 and worked as a nurse during the American Civil War, after which she started to write. She never married, and resided at her family home in Rhode Island until her death in 1905. The fictional Carr family, who feature in What Katy Did, are based on her own family, with Katy Carr inspired by Woolsey herself and the brothers and sisters by her four younger siblings.

    A Must Read

    I love this book. There are five books in this series, and the first three are in print. They are this one'What Katy Did', and the next two'What Katy Did At School, What Katy Did Next. The other two'Clover, In the High Valley', are out of print. Everybody will like this book. All the books that I' ve read in this series are really goos'the ones in print', but this one is by far the best. Everybody has to read this book, it' s soo good!
