Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The toddlerlike mouse star of Cousins’s long-running series invites readers to complete and expand on crayon-style drawings. “Drip, drop, drip, drop. Fill the sky with rain,” says Maisy, as she steps across the page with an umbrella; an elephant appears opposite, where children are asked to draw water “splooshing from Eddie’s trunk.” When Maisy looks at her face in a mirror, readers are encouraged to draw their own faces. Animals appear frequently: after giving a zebra stripes, the narrator says, “These animals would like some stripes, too,” as a cat, snake, fish, and others appear against a yellow backdrop. The casual tone and creative suggestions are an open invitation for kids to stretch their imaginations. Ages 3–up. (Apr.)
Children's Literature - Tima Murrell
Maisy is inviting young child to come and draw with her as she explores the world around her. Each page has colorful drawings and illustrations that help spark a young imagination. Large, simple print on each page explains what Maisy would like the young artist to accomplish. Drawing ears on a rabbit or copying the lines across the page is just a few of the fun things a child will enjoy in the doodle book. Filled with animals, shapes, colors and art that will help a child learn in a fun and creative atmosphere. The instructions are simple enough that the youngest artists will be able to complete the tasks, but creative enough that the older children will have fun putting their own spin on the doodle book. This book is a perfect car companion for long trips or to be used in the classroom to make learning fun. My children are four and six years old and love this book. Reviewer: Tima Murrell
