    This is the third in the series of books about the Carr family which began withWhat Katy Did. I felt that What Katy Did Next, was the weakest of the three, perhaps because it introduced concerns about which I was not interested, namely exclusively female chitchat, and a predictable romantic element It was written in 1886, thirteen years after the second one, and intended for amature audience.The book introduces a new character, a widow called Mrs Ashe Her nephew, Walter, has come to This is the third in the series of books about the Carr family which began withWhat Katy Did. I felt that What Katy Did Next, was the weakest of the three, perhaps because it introduced concerns about which I was not interested, namely exclusively female chitchat, and a predictable romantic element It was written in 1886, thirteen years after the second one, and intended for amature audience.The book introduces a new character, a widow called Mrs Ashe Her nephew, Walter, has come to visit, but then he is discovered that to have scarlet fever Mrs Ashe does not want her only daughter Amy to get the disease, so she is sent to live with the Carrs What a considerate mother She and Katy, the eldest daughter, become good friends.When Walter has recovered, Mrs Ashe decides to invite Katy to be her travel companion on a vacation to EuropeIt is a curious fact, and makes life very interesting, that, generally speaking, none of us have any expectation that things are going to happen till the very moment when they do happen We wake up some morning with no idea that a great happiness is at hand, and before night it has come, and all the world is changed for us or we wake bright and cheerful, with never a guess that clouds of sorrow are lowering in our sky, to put all the sunshine out for a while, and before noon all is dark Nothing whispers of either the joy or the grief No instinct bids us to delay or to hasten the opening of the letter or telegram, or the lifting of the latch of the door at which stands the messenger of good or ill Mr Carr persuades Katy that this is a good idea, and gives her some money for the trip Before she goes, however, Katy goes to Boston to visit her old friend Rose Red Browne from Hillsover Rose is now married, to someone called Deniston, and they have a child Katy is delighted to hear the news and see the baby, but Rose is boastful about being a Bostonian The two old friends argue about the merits of the natural world, which Katy loves.They organise a reunion of all their school friends from Hillsover, to take place in Rose s house Mary Silver, Esther Dearbon, Ellen Gray, and Alice Gibbons meet up onceand reminisce about old times It is revealed that Miss Jane is still teaching, Lilly Page is now in Europe, and Bella is teaching out on the prairies view spoiler After the reunion, Katy goes on a steam ship to England with the Ashes, as planned All three of them are seasick on the journey, but they eventually arrive Katy does some sight seeing, but finds English culture very confusing For instance it seems strange to her that afine daymeans any day it is not raining She is also very disappointed to discover that the English muffins she had been looking forward to tasting, ever since Charles Dickens had enthused about them commended in his books seem to have no taste, to her.Predictably enough there is a love interest After spending some time with Ned, Mrs Ashe s brother, the two fall in love Back home again Katy receives a letter from Ned and blushing, runs to her room The book ends leaving her sister, Clover, and the reader expecting Katy and Ned to get married in the future hide spoiler This is the only other book I read in the series It seems very run of the mill, with newly narrow concerns and gossipy females quite a disappointment for who had been rooting for the formerly spirited heroine, Katy Carr This is a nascent romantic novel, for young girls who would be immersed in such books to the exclusion of all others, later This was never to be my choice of reading material, but as such it functions reasonably well, so I rate it at two stars

    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, 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 don t actually get to see any romance or hear any romantic talk from the lovers, because the author wishes to protect our innocent young minds from the subject If you can t tell from this, I enjoyed it

    Hm..I really like Katy, but this book seemedabout Europe than Katy and her familythe romance also seemed a bit weird I almost skipped some pages, they were a bit tiresome and not important for the storyBut it was an appropriate finish of the story, in just the right time I would like to have read a continuation of the series about other children from the family, especially Clover

    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 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 sick nephew With Katy and Mrs Ashe is little Amy, and the book is really about their trip Which ends up not being as pleasant as they expected every country they visit has its own horrible things and everything is so different from dear America , either it is the weather, either it is some disease In fact, in this the book was most annoying These people decide to travel, to visit another continent, but keep complaining because things are different from what they are used to I kept wondering why they went in first place And why they thought that taking eight year old Amy I think that s her age would be a good idea Amy is rather spoiled and whines about everything all the time Katy seems to enjoy the sight seeings and it is her who solves everything, when no one else seems to know what to do Katy s positiveness and proactivity could be a little irritating at times But everything ends obviously well, even if it was rather abrupt.All in all, I think this book achieved its purpose it was a pretty decent little read that helped wash away the unpleasant impression left by that Jonas Jonasson book

    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 ismature, it doesn t have the fun and frivolity of the previous book.I did enjoy this a lotthis 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 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 ismature, it doesn t have the fun and frivolity of the previous book.I did enjoy this a lotthis 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 does rather than to get things like her cousin Seeing Katy grow up over these books reminds me of just how much I have grown up myself, I still think that the pleasures of these books will be lost on todays youth but I also think there will be the rare few that can enjoy them as they are meant to be and take to heart the lessons shown within them
