For those who grew up loving Peter Rabbit, this is a perfect story. Miss Suzy Squirrel loves her house in the Oak tree, but one day a gang of red squirrels come chase her out! She makes a new home in the attic of an old empty house and makes friends with a troupe of toy soldiers. Very sweet, with illustrations like Beatrix Potter. — Leah Moore

Miss Suzy is a gray squirrel who just wants to live "in the tip, tip top of a tall oak tree." She lives a happy and quiet life there until a gang of mean red squirrels chase her out of her home. Finding a seemingly abandoned house in the woods, Miss Suzy finds a doll house inside. But she is not alone. Here she finds a box of toy soldiers whom she takes care of during the winter. They return the favor by helping Miss Suzy get her home back. Arnold Lobel's drawings remain as fresh as they did when Miss Suzy first graced us with her delightful story. Miss Suzy will always be a book to snuggle up to with your favorite toddler in your lap and book in hand. — Jeanette
