Written by Carole P. Roman

Illustrated by Mateya Arkova

Publisher’s Synopsis: Susannah Maya Logan is not having a good day. She doesn’t want to go to her best friend, Lola’s sleepover. Susannah thinks the house is big and spooky, not to mention the ghost that is said to live there. Lola’s big brother, Kai, loves to tease Susannah with scary stories. Throughout her day, she sees people deal with things that scare them. Her sight-impaired friend, Macy, is terrified of unicorns, of all things. She sees a boy at a party who’s frightened of clowns. Her teacher is afraid of getting a cold. Susannah realizes everybody is scared of something. She wishes she was more like Lola, who is not afraid of anything, or so it seems. Susannah discovers people have different ideas of what is scary and what is not, and only they can determine the difference. Join Susannah as she learns to confront her fears and not let her imagination prevent her from having fun.

  • I would love to win these books for my daughter. I think they would be great lessons for her and lots of fun to read together. It is often hard for kids to see things from other’s perspective. It looks like these books would be wonderful leads to discuss that everyone is scared of different things and how we can face our fears.

  • I love the way the titles start out with the start of the characters name but, Oh, Susanna and so very clever! A cute giveaway of books with a backpack for a very lucky young reader, like my grand daughter!
