Reviews - What do customers think about Miss Suzy?

Childhood favorite revisited  Aug 23, 2008
This is a book that my mother read to me as a child and, later, as I learned to read, would read to her. Now, 30 years later, I am reading this to my daughter and sharing one of my childhood favorites with her. Some of the ideas are a little dated, Miss Suzy is a stay-at-home squirrel who enjoys cooking and cleaning, but it also a tale of kindness and respect.
I love Miss Suzy!  Jul 14, 2008
My Mom read this to me when I was a little boy and it was my favorite book. Now, thirty-some years later, I was delighted to find it in a box. It's the same copy, which sadly, the cover had been ripped off somewhere, with "Property of Tony" scrawled proudly in pencil on the first page. It brought a tear to my eye remembering sitting in my Dad's recliner in the living room and having my Mom read Miss Suzy to me. I don't have any children myself, but I ordered two copies for friends with small children, and would recommend this book to anyone in a second. I think I'll order a new copy for myself just so I have a new one but my old copy, I will cherish forever.
childhood favorite  Jul 8, 2008
My mom gave away our books when we were teens and I've been restoring the collection bit by bit as an adult. I found Miss Suzy a few years ago in an antique store and bought it, but now that it's back in print I'll be able to give it away to friends.

My favorite part was the big spider Miss Suzy scares away and the soldiers helping her get her house back.
An Absolute Favorite  May 3, 2008
This was my absolute favorite book when I was a little girl. I discovered it in first grade at my school's library. I just loved the tall oak tree where Ms. Suzy had her little house. My parents purchased a copy for me to have at home. Everything about this book stuck with me into adulthood. Many, many years later I just had to get it for my little girl, I know that she loves it too. I was so happy to see that it is still in print and children are still enjoying this adorable story.
Miss Suzy she loves her house she loves her home!   Mar 1, 2008
When I was growing up I owned very few books thankfully I went to the library often but out of the few books I did own this was one of them! I finally introduced it to my own little girl and its as timeless today as it was 25 yrs ago. Any reader is sure to fall in love with sweet little Miss Suzy she has a heart of gold!
