Puffin Covers 4



Susannah of the Mounties by Muriel Denison. Illustrated by Marguerite Bryant. Puffin Story Book 46. First published 1938, Puffin edition 1949.
I must have been about seven when I first read this book and I loved it, especially the part about Susannah getting her own Mountie uniform. Imagine how cross I was when it was read aloud to us at junior school and I’d already read it. Little did I know then that there are three other books about Susannah. They’re very hard to find but I’ve managed to read two of them.
