Susannah of the Mounties is a children's novel by Canadian author Muriel Denison, first published in 1936. In the book 9-year-old Susannah is sent to Regina, Saskatchewan to spend the summer with her uncle who is a Mountie. There are several sequels to the book: Susannah at Boarding School, Susannah of the Yukon and Susannah Rides Again.
In 1939 it was made into a movie Susannah of the Mounties starring Shirley Temple as Susannah. The movie plot differs significantly from the book: it is set twenty years earlier at a much smaller Mounted Police fort and Susannah's parents are dead rather than in India, while the character of the uncle is omitted. The film is a US version of the West rather than the Canadian West of the book.
