The Lovereading4Kids comment

Deliciously funny and touching, Sylvia Plath’s three wonderfully fresh and original stories were originally written for her own children but remain as delightful as ever. The title story, in which Max gets the very special suit he has always craved, and also Mrs Cherry’s Kitchen and The Bed Book all have a timeless appeal. The addition of David Roberts’s witty and tender illustrations adds a delightful sparkle.

Synopsis

The it Doesn't Matter Suit and Other Stories by Sylvia Plath

Simple, sweet, and with lovely black and white illustrations from David Roberts, The It-Doesn’t-Matter Suit and Other Stories is a perfect choice for emerging readers of 5 years and up.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
