Katy was the sort of girl who might do anything next, so long as it was something exciting! At twenty-one, she was as eager for adventure as ever, and what greater adventure could there be for an American girl than a trip to Europe? Watching a Punch-and-Judy show in London…driving down the Champs-Élysées in Paris…on to the Riviera and the picture-postcard blue of the Mediterranean…on again to Italy, Naples, Rome, Florence and, at last, to Venice and into a gondola on the Grand Canal, with a handsome young naval officer who—ah, but that would be telling!

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Katy goes to Europe and is so fortunate as to enjoy the novelties and beauties which she sees, with ideal enthusiasm. Somehow, despite the familiarity of the ground, the story does not lack interest and freshness. The book is bright, sensible, and entertaining.” Nation
“The freshness of spirit, charm of style, warm sympathy with and large knowledge of childhood, which have characterized all Susan Coolidge’s stories for young readers reappear in [What Katy Did Next].” Book News
“Susan Coolidge’s books need no commending; they are as tempting as they are sweet and pure; she knows how to make attractive everything she touches; and good literature, good English, does not suffer at her hands, while the refinement of tone and moral fiber are all that could be desired.” Literary World
“Written in Miss Coolidge’s usual bright style…the characters are well drawn and the tone as high as its predecessors.” Churchman

Author Bio: Susan Coolidge

Susan Coolidge was the pen name of Sarah Chauncy Woolsey (1835–1905). Born in Ohio, she served as a nurse during the Civil War and after that turned to writing. When her first book, A New Year’s Bargain, was published in 1871, her editor, who was also the editor for Louisa May Alcott, suggested that Susan Coolidge try her hand at the same kind of story as Alcott’s. What followed were five books about the irrepressible Katy Carr and the fortunes and misfortunes of the Carr family, characters based on members of Coolidge’s own family.
