Product Description

Review

"This book really got me hooked while she struggled and was happy. I recommend it to all children and I hope you enjoy it too!!!" (Alice Brown, aged 10 Guardian)

"This tale of a boisterous child coming into maturity reads with the same zest and insight as it would have done when it was first published over 130 years ago" (Guardian)

"So what makes these different to any other set of classics? In a moment of inspiration Random House had the bright idea of actually asking Key stage 2 children what extra ingredients they could add to make children want to read. And does it work? Well, put it this way...my 13-year-old daughter announced that she had to read a book over the summer holiday and, without any prompting, spotted The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas...and proceeded to read it! Now, if you knew my 13-year-old daughter, you would realise that this is quite remarkable. She reads texts, blogs and tags by the thousand - but this is the first book she has read since going to high school, so all hail Vintage Classics!" (National Association for the Teaching of English)

"A book about a long lanky tomboy with tangled hair, a crazy imagination and a whole heap of good intentions. Katy Carr wasn't perfect - far from it - but she was perfect for me!" (Cathy Cassidy) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

'I mean to do something grand. I don't know what, yet; but when I'm grown up I shall find out'

Katy Carr is the longest girl that was ever seen. She is all legs and elbows, and angles and joints. She tears her dress every day, hates sewing and doesn't care a button about being called 'good'. Her head is full of schemes and one day she plans to do something important. But a great deal is to happen to Katy before that time comes...

Includes exclusive material: In ‘The Backstory’ you can find out which character you most resemble and learn how to make a pin cushion.

Vintage Children’s Classics is a twenty-first century classics list aimed at 8-12 year olds and the adults in their lives.
