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!

Listen to a sample

“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.”


“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].”
