Susie and Alfred are neighbours, and best of friends. Usually. But in The Night of the Paper Bag Monsters, they try to make costumes for a special fancy dress party, and get in a horrible fight. Will they ever finish their costumes? And will they make up in time for the party? In The Knight, the Princess and the Dragon, Susie’s Uncle Jonas takes them both to an art gallery. Their favourite picture is of a knight saving a princess from a dreadful dragon – and it gives Susie an idea! These two favourite stories in the series about Susie and Alfred are being reissued with fresh new covers for a new generation of children to enjoy!

PreSchool-Grade 3 When little pigs Susie and Alfred see a picture of a pig knight saving a pig princess from a dragon, Susie wonders if Alfred likes her well enough to save her. She tries to get his attention, but he is too busy. Finally when she dresses up like a princess and really does need rescuing, Alfred, in his homemade knight’s attire, is only too happy to oblige. A slight story with engaging, detailed pictures in lightly tinted pastels. One grammatical error mars the otherwise smooth text. Mary Jane Kibby, Cheektowaga Public Lib . , N.Y.
