This was my absolute favorite book as a child! I now have a 5 year old son who loves it as well. I've given it as a git every time a book was required or desired, and every child who received it (plus all of the parents) *love* it. A true classic and a wonderful story!

This was a favorite story of mine as a young girl. The story of Miss Suzy being rescued by the toy soldiers was one I had read to me over and over. Now I'm buying the book many years later to read to young ones and give as gifts. If you love animal, especially grey squirrel stories, this is a sweet one.

His father used to read this book to him alot when he was little and just this week he came home asking if we still had the book. I now have an in home daycare and alot of my books have been worn out and thrown away. So very glad to find this book here for him to add to his library for his future children.

My children loved this story and now my grandchildren name it as a favorite. Girls especially love Miss Suzy and the dollhouse as well as her treehouse while boys relate to the toy soldiers heroism. It has brought me great pleasure to read and re-read it again to them I am so glad it is back in print.

OMG, where do I start?! I absolutely loved this book as a child and have been trying to remember to search for it online so that I can share it with my children. I can remember my mother reading this book to me as if it were yesterday. I don¿t know what it is about this book, but I know it is a cherished memory of mine! I¿m so glad to finally be reunited with Miss Suzy!!! Happy in Illinois

I was so extremely excited to see that this book is still available. All of my childhood books were lost and I have been trying to remember all the ones I owned. I remembered this one because I loved it so much as a child. I can't wait to let my 6 and 4 year old experience Miss Suzy.

Miss Suzy was my favorite book as a child. I will never forget the lovable little squirrel that lived in the 'tip tip top of a tall oak tree.' I was fascintated by her Firefly Lanterns and always tried to make some of my own! I wish more books written for children these days would inspire the imagination with its imagery and illustrations as this book does. If you can afford to add it to your collection, for your children, grandchildren, or even yourself, I know Miss Suzy will become one of your family's favorites as well.

miss suzy was a book my sisters and I would enjoy having our mother read to us. We would wish we were her neighbors. I am 47 years old and to this day, I think of this book often.

This was my favorite book growing up. I loved Miss Suzy and her story. My copy is well worn from frequent reading. I'm now buying a copy for my granddaughter to have her own copy to read and enjoy.
