suzy is a lost cat she came from France but inded up in England how dose she get back to France ?
  Soozleberry | Dec 8, 2012 |
As a Francophile I simply could not resist this children’s book. In addition and just to completely tempt me the cover also boasts a red blue and white hot air balloon. As readers will know this is another great enthusiasm of mine, having flown a number of flights in the Pyrenees. Jill Tomlinson’s book was first published in 1972, has evidently stood the test of time and was re published last year delightfully illustrated by Paul Howard.

What a gem this book is! Our Aimee has lready visited la belle France so the inclusion of some French words will add to the delight. It even has words she has learnt to say, like ‘au revoir’ and ‘merci’ plus the most true to life account of boarding a cross channel car ferry imaginable! How brilliant is that, what a feat of literary excellence. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 140521080X, Paperback)

One day, Suzy found a huge basket in a field. She climbed in, settled in the shade under a stool, and was soon fast asleep. When she woke up, the basket was in the sky! Suzy, the little French cat, has found herself in a hot-air balloon on its way to England! This is the start of Suzy's big adventure as she tries to make her way back home to France. In this beautifully illustrated picture book, Jill Tomlinson's heartwarming story has been carefully edited to retain all her gently humorous style, while Paul Howard's lovely pastel images perfectly capture the spirit of this absorbing tale.
