Kort biografi
Kate Seredy was born in Budapest to a multi-lingual family. Her grandparents were French, German, Slovakian, and Turkish, and all were active in some sort of political, religious, or personal rebellions. She earned an art teacher's degree at the Academy of Arts in Budapest. During World War I, she served as a nurse, then continued her studies around Europe. In 1922, she emigrated to the USA. She learned English quickly, ran a children's bookstore, and worked as a commercial illustrator and painter. In 1935, she met the children's editor at Viking Press, who encouraged her to write about her childhood in Hungary. Kate Seredy produced The Good Master, which she both wrote and illustrated. It was named a Newbery Honor book in 1935, a runner-up to Caddie Woodlawn, which Kate Seredy had also illustrated; another runner-up that year was Young Walter Scott, for which she had designed the book jacket and endpapers. In the course of her subsequent career, Seredy illustrated about 60 books and wrote a few more of her own, though she never considered herself a writer and thought of her stories as "an excuse for making pictures." One of her most famous is The White Stag, which won the Newbery Medal in 1938. She lived for many years at Listening Hill, a 100-acre farm near Montgomery, New York.

Note: There are differing years given for her birth year online, but both Wikipedia's sources, Encyclopedia Britannica, and the site hosting her archive gives it as 1899.



Jancsi is overjoyed to hear that his cousin from Budapest is coming to spend the summer on his father's ranch on the Hungarian plains. But their summer proves more adventurous than he had hoped when headstrong Kate arrives, as together they share horseback races across the plains, country fairs and festivals, and a dangerous run-in with the gypsies.

Life on the Hungarian plains is changing quickly for Jancsi and his cousin Kate. Father has given Jancsi permission to be in charge of his own herd, and Kate has begun to think about going to dances. Jancsi hardly even recognizes Kate when she appears at Peter and Mari's wedding wearing nearly as many petticoats as the older girls wear. And Jancsi himself, astride his prized horse, doesn't seem to Kate to be quite so boyish anymore. Then, when Hungary must send troops to fight in the Great War and Jancsi's father is called to battle, the two cousins must grow up all the sooner in order to take care of the farm and all the relatives, Russian soldiers, and German war orphans who take refuge there.… (mere)
