No Trouble for Susan (frontispiece)

No Trouble for Susan is perhaps the most lavishly illustrated of the Susan series. The colour frontispiece by the ubiquitous R. A. Branton shows Timmy the Terror up to mischief, knocking down the almost equally disagreeable Sir Arthur Symes, a.k.a. the Bad Bart, while skating on the pond in Wichwood Village. This scene takes place in Chapter 4, Interlude on Ice.
