      Yet another in the Katy books What Katy did next was go to Europe on a trip w a neighbor and her little daughter, in a travelogue written by someone who apparently hated traveling, which made this kind of hilarious England is too rainy, I don t remember the problem w Paris but it was horrible, Italy is full of fever, and they come home early Of course, what Katy also does next is fall in love, although it s in an odd slightly second thought way that I also found kind of funny And, of course, we [...]

      What Katy Did Next takes us back to the adventures of the high spirited Katy Carr I don t remember much from the previous books, so I don t know if Katy is the oldest daughter, or if there is someone older In this book Katy is twenty one years old, which I found surprising because I was expecting her to be younger But anyway, in this book Katy is invited by her neighbour Polly Ashe to go on a trip to Europe, after Katy has taken Mrs Ashe s little daughter, Amy, in while Mrs Ashe tends to her sic [...]

      This always has and I think always will be my least favourite in this series Part of the reason for this is because the end of What Katy Did at School is so final it seems strange to rejoin her three years later, the rest is because this book is mature, it doesn t have the fun and frivolity of the previous book.I did enjoy this a lot this time, I think it helps that I have now been to many of the same places that Katy visits also I now want to visit places to experience the history as Katy doe [...]

      Yeah, it was okay I liked it Some things made me VERY happy, but the general story and characters didn t really excite me Some chapters bored me But I m glad I read it I do like the Carr books What I liked 1 The beginning It s so deliciously frilly and girly Clover and Elsie sit in the blue bedroom, making a white party dress with frills on the bed I JUST LIKE IT P2 Amy s dolls made me laugh No, don t call them dolls They are my children And their names are hilarious I like Amy s uncle He made u [...]

      Jae Winter s review characterizes What Katy Did Next as a travelogue written by someone who apparently hated traveling England is too rainy, I don t remember the problem w Paris but it was horrible, Italy is full of fever, and they come home early Quite an accurate summary I think Susan Coolidge did like traveling, though I read all the miseries in this book as partly realism, partly warning her wealthy young American readers not to expect their own European tours to be completely comfortable Bu [...]

      This is another one of my mother s books that I also loved as a child I can t locate book 2, What Katy Did At School so I ve gone straight to book 3 which takes place 3 years after Katy Carr leaves Hillsover boarding school and returns home to Burnet.Katy cares for a neighbour s daughter, Amy Ashe, while Mrs Ashe cares for her nephew who is stricken with Scarlet Fever After many months, a grateful Mrs Ashe asks Katy to accompany her and Amy on an extended holiday to Europe What follows is a trav [...]

      I personally found this be to be the most disappointing of the Katy books With the European tour and Katy s finding love giving the author loads of room for adventure and romance, sadly, she chooses to pass and instead fills the book with a travelogue, much of it dry as she could make it I guess she was trying for educational over interesting Add to that the rather tedious tantrums and lengthy illness of a whiny brat Sadly as a geography book it is very dated when a choice of adventure and roman [...]

    9. F says:

      I rather get the feeling that as the first two Katy books went down well, the author submitted to pressure from readers and perhaps from her publishers and wrote a third book There are things that I liked very much The prospect of the journey is very exciting, but in fact, the journey itself is not easy and in many ways is difficult and troublesome The little girl is very ill but is her illness just an excuse to end the whole thing after 6 months and send everyone home and finish the story The a [...]

    10. Deborah says:

      Note mine is a late 1970s Armada edition probably abridged, given Armada s track record not this kindle edition I ve no idea why appears unable to let me switch to a printed edition To see ourselves as others see us this Katy story takes her on a trip to Europe Unfortunately she didn t visit my home town, and nobody I knew spoke with an h in front of every vowel, so it didn t seem very realistic although by the time I read this I had at least got the hang of the fact that the books were set some [...]

      I like Katy s story.But the love part.Katy just like a unusual here.She does not have a feeling for boy In young age she is 21 every girl has some kind of feeling for a boy.Maybe they do not expect to have affair or a friendship.But they have their own feelings about love.This story is like Katy does not have feelings.Is it possible And it s only show Ned s feelings for Katy.But did not mention Katy s feelings for Ned.It just like Ned falling love with a feeling less machine.We don t want to rea [...]

    12. Sue says:

      Third in the classic series about the kind and headstrong Katy, who is now a calmer young woman of twenty She dreams of travelling to Europe, so is thrilled when a rich neighbour offers to take her there as a companion, and also for extra help with the neighbour s daughter The book covers their travels by boat and train, near the end of the 19th century, and thus provides a lovely piece of social history which was contemporary at the time Katy retains her strong character and sense of justice al [...]

    13. Hilary Tesh says:

      What Katy did next is visit Europe in a book written thirteen years after the previous episode of Katy s story Travelling with her friend, dear Polly and her often whiney daughter, Amy the book is such a travelogue that I wondered if the author had herself visited the places so vividly described and checking her biography readseries auth bc coo confirmed this was the case The style differs from the previous Katy stories but the accustomed moral message is still there as Ned Worthington recognise [...]

    14. CuteBadger says:

      The third of the Katy books and the one I remembered least from my reading of it in my early teens Katy takes a trip to Europe with a friend and her daughter They face terrible sea sickness, bad weather, language difficulties and severe illness before returning to the US earlier than planned However all is not lost as Katy falls in love.While I enjoyed the book, I can t say I liked it as much as the previous two It s much serious and the moral exhortations are much obvious in this However, it [...]

    15. Kristi says:

      I didn t find this book as compelling as the first two in the series Considering that this novel told the story of Katy s trip to Europe, I expected much Of course Katy described the sights as beautiful and wonderful, but somehow the words fell flat I just didn t believe that she felt it It s like she completely missed where she was, and instead was completely focused on her traveling companions I did, however, laugh out loud when Katy got tired of making up stories for 8 year old Amy and kille [...]

      soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo adorably cute it is second in a series Katy is invited to go to europe with her dawling neihbors and ocourse she goes She takes care of the neihbors little girl and they have great fun together Katy being the BEAUTIFUL young women she is attracts a courter or whatever they are called but she only interprets him as a friend until the little girl gets sick Illness brings out emotion Katy falls in love with the handsome fellow that I can t remember the name of and he p [...]

    17. Sam Woodfield says:

      Again, this third offering on the life of Katy was much better as it shows how Katy has grown and developed as a character since the collection started I did find this novel rather rushed though, and dont think it really showed Katy s adventures in their entirety, and breezed over some parts and places which could have really been interesting However, overall I do find it sad that this is the end of the Katy saga and that we will not find out how her marriage to Ned Worthington takes shape as I [...]

    18. Tina says:

      I read this book because I d seen it in many reading lists Well, maybe its because I m past the age group that this book is meant for, but I felt bored for most part of the book The relations and the interactions between the characters presented in the book seem far too artificial I mean I know people may have been civil back in those days, but I don t believe in relationships with only love and innocent thoughts If I had been to the places Katy mentions in the book, I may have been able to app [...]

    19. Tirzah says:

      What Katy does next is take a year trip to Europe After helping out her neighbor Mrs Ashe and her daughter Amy, Mrs Ashe invites Katy to join her on a trip to see different countries Katy, torn between homesickness and adventure, agrees to go Katy sees many interesting places and cultures as her bond with Mrs Ashe and Amy deepen Rose Red and the disagreeable Lily make brief appearances Katy is her usual, peppy self and in the last chapter, readers have fun speculating what Katy is going to do ne [...]

    20. Megan Anderson says:

      I liked this book the best of the three I ve read so far It wasn t as saccharine and didactic as the others though, it had its moments Katy had a lot of snark for a character written back in the day I particularly enjoyed how she finished her story about Violet and Emma I won t lie, though Amy was a spoiled little brat, and I probably would ve smacked her at some point during the trip.On the whole, an enjoyable book.

    21. Lara says:

      Another sweet instalment of the Katy books, this one was written some 10 years after its prequel, set only a year or two later It tells what happened when Katy goes to Europe with a friend, set some time earlier than 1886 when it was written As an adult, I most enjoyed the brief descriptions of places she visits, particularly Rome While the Forum and Colosseum are each described in a single sentence, they sound so different to modern times Time travel from the comfort of my own arm chair

    22. Meredith Galman says:

      Typical girl s story of an earlier time our heroine travels abroad, has a few mild adventures, nurses a sick child, and wins the child s uncle with her innate sweetness and worthiness I m grateful to Coolidge for the geographical and cultural information I couldn t have gotten anywhere else who knew that that language spoken by people living in Rome was French onlinebooksbrary.upenn

    23. Katy says:

      Sadly this was really boring compared to the previous books Nice to see Rose Red again, but otherwise it was an endless list of things in Europe that are pretty and descriptions of an ill child complaining about being ill I did like the part where Amy asked Katy to tell her a story, and the story she told was Once upon a time there were two little girls, and they were horrible smashed to death, the end.

    24. Frances says:

      A classic that doesn t hold up as well Recommended to me by my former roommate, but it didn t grab me In this volume, Katy goes to Europe with a neighbor and her obnoxious I think she s supposed to be adorable daughter They have adventures and spoiler alert Katy becomes engaged to the neighbor s navy brother 2.5 stars.

    25. Heather says:

      I read this for the first time years ago so couldn t remember what happened I was pretty disappointed at the end because the book had been building up to a point and when it got there it just glossed over it and then finished I have now found out there are 2 books in the series so don t mind too much.

    26. Heather says:

      Loved this Katy book just as much as the first and second in the series, although I was slightly irritated by the fact that Coolidge is very much down on us Brits same thing crops up again in the fifth in the series, In the High Valley However, I particularly enjoyed reading about the flowering of Katy s relationship with her future husband.

    27. Katie says:

      The story is great but The edition I read 1994, Parragon had loads of spelling mistakes and typos which got really annoying, for example, instead of us it was U9 and there were random letters at the end of sentences and colons in the middle of words I would recommend the book but not from this publisher.

    28. Deborah Ideiosepius says:

      I thoroughly enjoy this book, I like the other two of the Katy series that I have read, but this one, the third where you get to the the Europe of years gone by through the eyes of a young naive American woman charmed me for the first and it still does.

    29. Lily says:

      I don t think I d ever actually completed this before, I certainly hadn t recalled how sweet the story of Ned and Katy was.It was also nice to see the travelling party come so close to where I live, in their exploits around London.

    30. Kaitlyn Wb says:

      So lovely to revisit a favorite childhood classic and find that there were two of them free on the Kindle While predictable, I was glad to re enter Katy s world and go through Europe with her.
