Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
In this lift-the-flaps and pull-the-tabs book, young children will help Maisy, a little white English mouse, settle into bedtime. First, of course, she will have a bedtime drink. She chooses a red drink and the reader helps her lift the glass to her lips. Next, it is time for the potty. The reader is able to raise the seat cover, pull out some paper and pull down the handle that causes fresh water to fill the bowl. Next Maisy wisely finds the plug for the sink before pulling down the tab that allows fresh water fill the basin so she can wash her hands. She brushes her teeth, puts on her pajamas, and chooses a book to read. Of course, she will need help for all of this from her reader who can pull the tabs and raise the flaps to help with brushing her teeth, opening the closet to find her pajamas, and turning the pages of her bedtime book. On the last two pages she is seen sleeping under a quilt with only her ears and closed eyes visible above the top of the blanket. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
By moving tabs and lifting flaps that manipulate such items as clothes that pull on and off, a toothbrush and a tiny bedtime book with real pages, little ones can help Maisy Mouse prepare for a swim or get ready for bed. Though the action requires a gentle touch and some of the movements may be difficult for small hands, these books with their unusual use of paper mechanics offer a creative approach to basic concepts. Cousins's painting and lettering, reminiscent of a child's use of tempera, provide an air of whimsicality to Maisy's endeavors that will be instantly recognized by children beginning to do daily tasks for themselves. Ages 2-5. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
Move over Spot--Maisy has come to town. In her first adventure, a winter-bundled Maisy heads for the pool. As readers pull tabs and lift flaps, she takes off each colorful item. After the blue hat, scarf and mittens, brown boots, red jacket, green trousers, etc. come off and a rainbow bathing suit is pulled on, Maisy goes for a swim. In the second book, it's time for Maisy to go to bed. As the sky magically darkens, she gets the obligatory drink, then uses the potty. Courtesy of flap and pull-tab magic, the toilet really flushes and the toilet paper pulls down. After hand-washing, tooth-brushing, pajama-donning, and a bedtime story, it's time to pull the covers up. Goodnight Maisy. Maisy, a sweet white mouse, is a charmer. The bright colors--in a primitive, blocky art style--and the subject matter are naturals for the toddler set. However, as well engineered as these are, the flaps and tabs will suffer wear and tear from small fingers --Karen K. Radtke, Milwaukee Public Library
