Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Maisy and her friends enter the movie theater and decide to watch “Hero in the Jungle” starring Troy T. Tiger. They buy snacks and show their tickets to the usher. Cyril is frightened of the dark when the lights go down, so Maisy offers to hold his hand. The movie is exciting and funny. Three friends leave halfway through to go to the bathroom (one is shown sitting on the toilet), but they hurry back in time to see the scary part when Troy T. Tiger meets a huge dinosaur. The audience shouts “Hooray!” after the happy ending. Later, the friends talk about the movie as they drink boxes of juice. Then they decide to see it again. Youngsters familiar with other Maisy books will recognize the familiar format with the bright and colorful illustrations. The text is black and bold. Sure to be a favorite with preschoolers who know Maisy from her TV series and/or her previous books, this is part of the “Maisy First Experiences” series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.; Ages 3 to 6.

In this addition to the Maisy First Experiences line of books, Cousins’s mouse heroine and friends walk readers through the basics of catching a flick on the big screen. After settling on a film and stopping at the concession stand, Maisy and company give their tickets to an ostrich and settle into their seats. Cousins briskly defuses potential pitfalls that include a fear of the dark, the need to stay quiet, and the call of nature (“They go as fast as they can. And wash their hands very quickly.... They don’t want to miss anything”). Cousins’s vivid, ever-cheery artwork and economical writing continue to offer a welcoming and reassuring introduction to reader “firsts.” Ages 3–7. (Feb.)
From the Publisher
These are realistic situations that children will encounter firsthand when going to the cinema. ... Familiar primary-color gouache illustrations depict the action. ... Simple and true to the Maisy style, minus the lift flaps and pull tabs. An appealing addition.
—School Library Journal

The illustrations’ strong, black lines and bold, flat colors are as attractive and familiar as Cousins’ characters. Young children will enjoy learning what to expect from their own first experiences as moviegoers.

PreS-Gr 2—Maisy heads to the multiplex with her friends Charley the Crocodile, Tallulah the Chick, Cyril the Squirrel, and Eddie the Elephant. With so many films to choose from, it's hard to decide what to see. They select the one with their favorite movie star. After purchasing their tickets and snacks, they enter the theater. Even though they all want to sit in different places, they each find the right seat. Cyril is afraid of the dark and ends up holding Maisy's hand. Eddie is hushed by the crowd when he talks out loud. Tallulah and others need to use the restroom in the middle of the show. These are realistic situations that children will encounter firsthand when going to the cinema. After the movie, the pals discuss their favorite parts and then wonder what they can do. See it again, of course. Familiar primary-color gouache illustrations depict the action. Dark font against the dusk of the theater backgrounds makes it difficult to read the text on those pages, but white font is used when the theater is completely dark. Simple and true to the Maisy style, minus the lift flaps and pull tabs. An appealing addition.—Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX
