Suzy graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in European history. She met Rufus at the Davis campus while attending that campus for a year. They got married and lived in different places, including Canada, before settling into Connecticut, the state they now call home.Suzy taught in 5th and 6th grades at Shannon Elementary School in Richmond, California for 3 years, and 2nd and 3rd grades at Southwest Elementary School in Torrington, Connecticut for 24 years before retiring this past June. She now enjoys writing full-time and visiting schools and libraries. The couple share their home with two cats, Teeter and Hoag. They have two daughters, Jennifer and Emily, and four grandchildren- Jake, Kenna, Gabby and Saylor. A fifth grandchild is due in September, 2006. Suzy's mother just turned 96.

Reviews

Gr 2-4-- Room 2B is every child's dream. In these five short, easy-to-read stories of classroom life, Harry, Doug, and their friends enjoy Christmas, performing anti-smoking skits, and reading together. (Teachers should love the idea of celebrating Charlotte's Web with an invasion of paper spiderwebs!) The teacher, the principal, and the librarian are caring, understanding, and adaptable. It's refreshing to find adult authority figures portrayed so warmly. The principal doesn't balk at volunteering as a model in the class speech lesson--even when Doug's demonstration turns out to be how to spike one's hair. Harry's demonstration is ``green slime,'' a kind of Silly Putty concoction made with cornstarch, water and food coloring. The recipe actually works, which will delight experiment-minded readers. For a slightly younger audience than the author's ``Herbie Jones'' series (Putnam), this is one school story which rates an A+. --Elaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, Ill.

Best friends Harry and Doug triumph in each of the five scenarios in this sequel to Horrible Harry in Room 2B. They overcome an argument that arises when the class has to choose ``secret pals''; put on the best anti-smoking skit in the class; and lead the others in putting homemade spider webs up around the school in commemoration of Charlotte's Web. Despite the genuinely childlike situations it draws on, the book is a disappointment: too often the humor fizzles. The only laugh-out-loud moment comes when the principal volunteers to be Doug's assistant in a show-and-tell presentation; unbeknownst to Mr. Cardini, Doug plans to demonstrate how to spike hair. Other intended jokes fall flat or come at the expense of other classmates, giving a few of the stories a vaguely mean-spirited tinge. Illustrations not seen by PW. Ages 7-10. (May)
