Suzy Doozy is a headstrong girl with boundless energy and imagination. In a series devoted to her adventures, she more than lives up to her impish name.

In ‘Suzy Doozy in the Deep End’, Suzy and Dog explore the deep end of the swimming pool for the first time. She unleashes total chaos and is sent straight back to the wading pool. But that’s discounting Suzy’s resourcefulness…
In ‘Suzy Takes Up Drawing’, Suzy throws herself headlong into her new hobby. Dog has to pose for her for hours on end. And as we have come to expect from her, it does not take long before her drawing gets out of control.
Benjamin Leroy’s whirling illustrations are closely linked to Jaap Robben’s text in this series. The duo write and illustrate with a lot of empathy and love for the recalcitrant heroine. Despite Suzy’s pranks, the reader feels nothing but sympathy for this disarming little character with her huge, expressive eyes.
Robben & Leroy again excel in delightful, humorous stories. ****Cutting Edge
