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.

  • It’s in the Bag would be a terrific intro to Susannah for our 8 year old Grand-niece. She loves sleep-overs and she loves adventures. The teacher in me is thrilled at her love of reading, so books are always expected from us when we are able to visit with her. Then, again, since my kinder-bears already love the many Carole Roman books we have in our library, winning this set would be a terrific gift for an upper-grade classroom, too.
