Miss Suzy is, simply put, one of those books that warm you from the inside out and put a smile on your face.
Centered on the eponymous little squirrel, this is a gentle, old-fashioned kindness-begets-kindness tale that has been sweetly brought to endearing life by the great Arnold Lobel’s adorable crosshatch illustrations. Two words: acorn cups. ‘Nuff said.
The good news is that this 1964 classic was brought back in print last year by Purple House Press, so get your hands on a copy pronto!
