Girl power

24th March 2000 at 00:00
Susan is like any other little girl: she rides, swings, dances, she is strong, she is weak. Created by the sharp, witty authorillustrator team of Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross in Susan Laughs (Andersen Press pound;9.99) she is without doubt quintessentialy girly - which is why the book presents such a powerful challenge to deep-seated prejudice.

Susan's disability is both the punchline and completely incidental to the story. This will become a key book for tackling a difficult issue.
