Katy has grand plans to be beautiful, graceful and ladylike … one day! But for now she has hair that is always tangled, bootlaces undone, a torn dress and she doesn’t care about being ‘good’. With a wild imagination and high spirits, she is always up to mischief, but there never has been a heroine as lovable as Katy. Then a terrible accident happens and it takes all her courage – and hard-learned patience – to keep her dreams alive.
‘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
