by | Read by Madeleine Leslay

Children Ages 8+ • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Madeleine Leslay narrates this modern retelling of Susan Coolidge's 1872 classic WHAT KATY DID. Leslay takes listeners every step of the way as Katy Carr goes from a lively 11-year-old to needing to use a wheelchair after an accident. Leslay inhabits feisty Katy, who's looked up to by “the Littlies" (her five siblings). Each child is presented with distinction—from food-loving Dorry to best friend-sister Clover. Other Leslay standouts are strict stepmother Izzie, who often argues with Katy, and gentle Helen, a patient of Dr. Carr's who also uses a wheelchair and inspires the girl. Listeners of all ages will rejoice when Katy ultimately realizes she’s still her unique self and finds enthusiasm for a future full of possibilities.
