PreSchool-Grade 2—Suzy lives in France with a fisherman and his four sons. One day, she climbs into a basket she spies in the field and settles in for a nap, only to wake up and find herself up in a hot-air balloon on her way to England. The cheery illustrations are full of detail, yet also come across as soft and comforting, with their pastel hues and softened lines that make Suzy a particularly endearing tabby. The rest of the story shows her various attempts to make it back home, even though the kindly old woman who takes her in is very nice and has a talking parrot. When surfing, waterskiing, and swimming fail to get her home, she finally winds up on a car ferry. As the crew and passengers attempt to capture her, she jumps overboard, where she is rescued-by four boys in a boat with their fisherman father. Suzy has found her beloved family, leaving Auntie Jo to wonder exactly where Biff the parrot learned to say "au revoir
." A charming tale for both listening to and reading independently.—Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY
