Suzuki Beane

Sandra Scoppettone


(FITZHUGH, Louise, illustrator) SCOPPETTONE, Sandra. Suzuki Beane. Garden City: Doubleday, 1961. Large slim octavo, original pictorial paper boards, original dust jacket. $600.

First edition of this story of a beatnik child in the West Village, illustrated by Harriet the Spy author and illustrator Louise Fitzhugh, signed on the title page by author Sandra Scoppettone.

A downtown satire of Kay Thompson's Eloise, Suzuki Beane ably captures childhood, beatniks, and the struggle of the individual against society. " Suzuki Beane "tells the story of a naughty little hipster who lives on Bleecker Street with Hugh, her Beat poet father, and Marcia, her spaced-out sculptor mother. The distinctively grotesque and scratchy looking illustrations (by Louise Fitzhugh) look straight out of Harriet the Spy" (Mrs. Little).

Mild toning to dust jacket. About-fine condition.
