Miss Suzy, a squirrel, is routed from her idyllic treetop home by a bunch of ruffian squirrels; moves into an attic dollhouse; welcomes and mothers some abandoned toy soldiers; and then regains her first, beloved home with the soldiers' help. The book's appeal is in the coziness of the homes gentle Miss Suzy creates and in Lobel's expressive crosshatch illustrations. (Copyright 2005 by The Horn Book, Incorporated, Boston.

Miss Suzy: 40th Anniversary Edition by Miriam Young, illus. by Arnold Lobel, celebrates this tale's reissue. Miss Suzy, a gray squirrel, lives "in the tip, tip, top of a tall oak tree"-until a throng of mean red squirrels displaces her. She retreats to a dollhouse and meets some toy soldiers who help her reclaim her house. Lobel's pen-and-ink drawings with a burgundy wash alternate with full-color pictures in hues bold and rich or delicate and ethereal.

As for this reprint, it is very nice. It is no sloppy reproduction. Rather, the book is a quality product from cover to cover, and, unless my memory truly fails, I think it is a very faithful reproduction of the book I read as a child. It has given me much renewed pleasure to read it to my daughters, and it has become a frequently requested book. In fact, I have seen my 5-year-old daughter flip it open on many occasions on her own -- she cannot yet read, but knows the story by heart and (like me) loves Lobel's drawings. Pick this one up to add it to your child's collection while it is still in print.
