P.S. To My Post

 In case you're wondering, the Katie John books...Katie John, Depend on Katie John and Katie John and Heathcliff are all out of print. They were published between 1960-65, and were last reprinted in paper in the '70's. Katie John may be out of print, but she's not forgotten. When students ask me what my own favorite books from childhood were, and I mention Katie John, there is always a teacher or librarian of my generation whose face lights up and says, "Ah, Katie John. I'd forgotten her, but boy did I love those books!"

Thanks for the P.S., Mary Ann. Luckily, thanks to websites like, you can still buy used copies of the Katie John books for as little as $1.99, even though the books are out of print.
