NZ Review '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.' -- The Guardian

Author's Bio

Sarah Chauncey Woolsey (January 29, 1835 - April 9, 1905) was an American children's author who wrote under the pen name Susan Coolidge. Woolsey worked as a nurse during the American Civil War (1861-1865), after which she started to write. She never married, and resided at her family home in Newport, Rhode Island, until her death. She edited The Autobiography and Correspondence of Mrs. Delaney (1879) and The Diary and Letters of Frances Burney (1880). She is best-known for her classic children's novel What Katy Did (1872). The fictional Carr family was modeled after her own, with Katy Carr inspired by Woolsey herself. The brothers and sisters were modeled on her four younger siblings. Since her acclaimed debut in the Sydney Theatre Company's 2002 production of The Glass Menagerie, Eloise has worked with the STC, the MTC, Racing Pulse and numerous independent theatre companies Australia wide. An avid reader, her Bolinda audiobook titles range from Ted Prior's kids classics to Peter Carey's literary fiction. Screen credits include Oddball, Hunt Angels, and the ABC's The Cut, My Place and The Doctor Blake Mysteries.
