Book Review #1232
The Extraordinary Mark Twain (According to Susy) by Barbara Kerley, illustrated by Edwin Fotheringham
Rating: two stars (out of four)
This was a pretty good book. I really liked the concept of looking at Mark Twain from the point of view of his daughter, Susy. Her notes on her father and what she thought people should know about him were often entertaining and insightful. I also liked the little notebooks with journal entries from Susy's biography. The pictures were fun as well. I'd recommend if you were a Mark Twain fan.
