Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Maisy and her friends—including Charley the crocodile, Eddie the elephant, and Tallulah the chick—enjoy a day at the fair, going on rides and playing games together. Via tabs, readers can help the animals gently collide in bumper cars (“Whee! Thump! Bump!”), bounce in a “bouncy castle,” swing wildly on a swing ride, travel down a slide, and follow the ups and downs of a roller coaster. The final spread features a rotating pop-up Ferris wheel (“Phew! Wow! Whoopee!”). Cousins offers high-energy descriptions of each activity: “Swing that hammer, Eddie. Ring-a-ding the bell! Watch the giant swings go up high, then down low.” The bright colors, familiar characters, onomatopoeic prose,and satisfying interactive effects provide an exuberant peek into both the sights and the sounds of the fair. Ages 2–5. (June)

2013-09-25
Maisy and friends visit an amusement park, but the experience is about as exciting as watching a dropped Creamsicle melt. The breathlessly hyperbolic text--"Phew! Wow! Whoopee! Treats! Surprises! Prizes! Rides! Look here, there, and everywhere!"--is perhaps a clue that this trip needs some help. Neither it nor the incandescent colors and heavy black lines of Cousins' art serve to rev up the seven underperforming movable rides and other attractions. The visit begins with bumper cars in which a pull tab moves only two of the visible cars (approximately 1 inch each, at that) and ends with an unconvincing pop-up Ferris wheel. This latter has seats that not only have to be loosened by hand, but in motion, often turn to show blank backs. Alas, the outing's other special effects are likewise as lackadaisically designed as they are physically fragile. Even confirmed fans are unlikely to give this perfunctory outing more than a quick spin. (Pop-up/picture book. 4-6)
