Someone for Mr. Sussman by Patricia Polacco - ADVISABLE

Someone for Mr. Sussman by Patricia Polacco. Philomel Books, 2008.


Jerome’s bubbie(grandmother) is a matchmaker. She has been successful in making many matches, except for Mr. Sussman. The reader soon finds out, however, that Mr. Sussman’s perfect match may be the one right in front of his eyes. With funny ways of trying to get this man to notice her, bubbie soon becomes frustrated and sick of trying to get Mr. Sussman to notice her. She’ll soon find out, however that, “No pot is so crooked that there isn’t a lid to fit it(last page of the book).

True to the plot and illustrations of previous Polacco’s books, this book in itself would be worth buying. The funny story and interesting observation Jerome makes about his bubbie’s attitude, however, are priceless. A great book to add to any collection.
