CriticasPreS-The little mouse and her faithful companion, Flor the squirrel, take off on two new adventures in these brightly colored board books. In the first, they conduct a train full of friends, meeting and saluting different animals along the way. In the second, Maisy and Flor enjoy a ride in a fire truck and play with the water hose. When they accidentally spray a little black cat and it escapes to a rooftop, they need the long ladder to rescue it. Cousins incorporates lots of sounds in each of her books and illustrates them with eye-popping colors outlined in thick, black lines. The simple text is translated straightfordwardly. No toddler collection at home or school is complete without the series.
