From the Publisher:

Jill Tomlinson’s gently instructive animal tales have had an enduring appeal, delighting children for decades. Funny and reassuring, and now beautifully repackaged, these are books to enjoy time and time again. Illustrator Paul Howard has collaborated on many books, including Bravest Ever Bear, written by the renowned Allan Ahlberg.

From AudioFile:

Suzy the cat loves her life in France, where she lives with a fisherman and his four sons. One day she falls asleep in a basket that turns out to be attached to a hot air balloon, and she finds herself in England, with a body of dreaded water between her and her home. Suzy takes up residence with kindly Aunt Josephine and day after day tries to find a way across the water. Maureen Lipman gives a capable reading of this short chapter book. Suzy's meow is a bit grating, but all is made up by Lipman's wonderful voice for Aunt Josephine's parrot, Biff. Much of this story is truly funny, even if the end is bittersweet.
