Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

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

Format: Paperback
Did you ever see a cat water skiing? I read a book about a cat how did. It is called The Cat Who Wanted To Go Home by Jill Tomlinson. My book is about a cat that gets lost. He tries to get back home. This is a great book because it is very exciting. One of the exciting pictures is when the cat swims in the water to catch up with a boat. I think the author is trying to tell you keep trying. Do you think the cat will ever get back home?

Format: Hardcover
Suzy finds a huge basket in a field, deems it the perfect spot to fall to sleep, and wakes up to find herself in the sky! Only problem is, Suzy is a cat, so she has no way of phoning home for help and finds herself on an adventure in England as she tries to return to her native France. Paul Howard's delightful and fun drawings embellish a fine story for grades 3-4.
