Book - 2002
Rate this:
Ten - year - old John Littell and his younger brother didn't understand why their mother and father made such a big fuss when their baby sister, Susie, was born. They would have definitely preferred a neat new 1956 Ford Thunderbird or a dog. At first, the boys thought Susie was incredibly dull. She didn't know any tricks, didn't talk or walk, and didn't have the sense to object to her sinister - looking carriage - a monstrous contraption John dubbed the Black Torpedo of Doom. Even worse, Susie was often entrusted to John's care - a decidedly uncool accessory to have while he played endless innings of intensely competitive kick baseball. But by the time Susie was old enough to start sharing secrets with Sadly - the mopey - faced basset hound who was her best friend - both brothers were crazy about her. This touching, often hilarious portrait of a vanished time tells how a little girl won the hearts of all the people she met - and changed their lives forever.
