Atchoo!

This is the story of Suzy Sue and the fateful day when she went ATCHOO!

If we teach her the rules. I’m sure we can save her from a life of bad manners and ghastly behaviour.”

  • "It'll become a firm favourite for any child of pre-school age. Highly recommended. " — The Bookbag
  • "an entertaining and lively tale that exposes social faux pas and injects the fun into teaching the finer rules of etiquette." — Junior
  • "Kids will love the humorous pictures filled with funny details - and grown-ups will appreciate the helpful advice!" — Scholastic: Parent and Child
