Suzy Doozy and the Scissors

In ‘Suzy Doozy and the Scissors’, Suzy finds an insatiable pair of scissors that craves girls’ hair. And before you know it, it has cut everything in its path. Everything and everyone, in the house and outside, has been touched – even her faithful little friend Dog.

Suzie Doozie series

Together with illustrator Benjamin Leroy, Jaap devised and made four books about Suzy Doozy. Waarom bestaat er nog geen boek over een stinkvinger? Of een schaartje dat honger heeft om te knippen. En waarom zijn er zoveel regels in een zwembad?

First of all, there was her name: Suzy Doozy. Jaap and Benjamin immediately knew who this girl was. Suzy always thinks up fantastic games her dog friend has to participate in. She has a fantasy that flows seamlessly into everyday life. Suzy never wants to give kisses, except with a mouth full of waffle crumbs. She’s one of those kids that know a syrup waffle fits perfectly into a CD player.

As with all their books, illustrator and writer worked together intensively, so that text and drawing constantly inspire each other, making it impossible to say who thought up what, because it’s a combined effort. Meanwhile Suzy has many fans and there are even real Suzy Doozy festivals.

"Funny and surprising, the creators have found a nice ironic balance between the playful and the rancid. This third part in the series – about a ballsy toddler with no manners – is again full of visual jokes, hilarious caricatures and catchy swinging rhymes. Top-class entertainment." ****
