Get kids moving with Maisy! Just pull the tabs, and your favorite mouse will show off fun actions that children will want to imitate.
Maisy is full of energy, just like the toddlers and preschoolers who love her. With this interactive picture book, children are invited to channel that get-up-and go into stretching, jumping, running, playing ball, jumping rope, somersaulting, and lots more. Like Maisy, of course, they'll want to take time for a nutritious snack -and hunker down for a good night's sleep when all that activity is done.
Lucy Cousins had her first Maisy book published by Walker soon after leaving college. Now Maisy has become one of the best-loved characters in children's books, recognized the world over. Lucy won the BolognaRagazzi Prize for Maisy's House in 1997 and the Smarties Book Prize in 2002 for Jazzy in the Jungle. Lucy has over 21 million books in print, including picture books, sticker books, cloth books, colouring books, board books, pull-the-tab and lift-the-flap books. Says the author-illustrator, "I get more pleasure and inspiration from walking around a primary school than from any art gallery." She lives in Hampshire with her partner and four teenage children.
