Quotes & reviews

Suzy Doozie

‘Funny and surprising, the creators have found a nice ironic balance between the playful and the rancid. This third part in the series – about a ballsy toddler with no manners – is again full of visual jokes, hilarious caricatures and catchy swinging rhymes. Top-class entertainment.’ **** De Morgen

‘Jaap Robben and Benjamin Leroy turn out to be an unsurpassed combination when it comes to high quality children’s literature with a high degree of humour. (…) A new heroine in children’s books has risen!’ **** Cutting Edge

‘Suzy is a fine combination between Lindgren’s Emil from Lonneberg and Pippi Longstocking, and she’s even a tad more mischievous and creative. That is probably the most politically correct way to put it these days. This is the book that my 4-year-old daughter usually reaches for. She almost gets a Christmas twinkle in her eyes thinking of her own scissors and the story of Suzy’s scissors.’ Litteratursiden.dk

‘What you get to see often exceeds your wildest expectations. Even after a second or third read you can fully enjoy the imaginative play between text and pictures’ Mappa Libri

‘From the moment the books about Suzy Doozy arrived through the letterbox, my children found a new heroine. Like true fans they’re chanting: ‘Suzy, Suzy, Suzy!’; when I ask them which story to read for bedtime.’ Bookstore van Rossum

‘In short: Suzy is pure children’s poetry, heart-warming children’s literature with illustrations that are elevated to art.’ ***** Hebban

‘Highly recommended’ **** Pluizuit

‘From the moment the books about Suzy Doozy arrived through the letterbox, my children found a new heroine. Like true fans they’re chanting: ‘Suzy, Suzy, Suzy!’ Mama Family

‘Truly a children’s book as a children’s book should be!’ Leestafel

‘The artistic illustrations show a lot of dynamics with many humorous details. (…) A very successful picture book.’ BIBLION

‘Jaap Robben writes very fine read-aloud texts, rhyming unadorned and thus showing the reading parents the way. The books must have been a joy for Benjamin Leroy to make. He’s clearly having a ball, because the pleasure of drawing is overwhelming.’ Edward van de Vendel
