Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Preschoolers crazy for Maisy will love spending the day with the adorable mouse as she shops, plays, bakes -- and learns to tell the time! This big book includes a plastic clock with movable hands that is shown through a die-cut hole on each page. As Maisy says good morning at 8:00 a.m., readers are encouraged to move the hand to the time. Kids can also help pick out Maisy's outfit, her noontime meal, and the toys she will play with in the park at 2:00 and in the bathtub at 6:00. Lucy Cousins's celebrated style, with bold colors and black outlines, will appeal to youngsters. And sturdy pages, with an even sturdier clock, will stand the test of time in any toddler's hands.
Kirkus Reviews

Don't be late for toddlers' beloved rodent heroine as she learns to tell time.

Maisy demonstrates a growing independence as she dresses herself, shops for groceries, eats, plays and washes before bed during specific times of day. The audience gets a voice throughout, as they're invited to express their preference for Maisy's outfit or the ingredients needed for baking afternoon cookies. There's directness in the question-and-answer format. "What will Maisy take to bed? / Drink, slippers, book, Panda!" This large, sturdy reissue encourages individual perusal, and the bold, open design supports group participation. Cousins' trademark wobbly lines and solid primary colors are youthfully inspired in traditional Maisy fashion. An imposing cut-out clock, complete with thick, movable plastic hands, remains a secure fixture suited for individual exploration. A dotted clock design on each page pinpoints how the time should read. Maisy's beloved stuffed panda tags along on these slight outings, seen riding in her wagon or holding the sponge during soapy bath time.

No better time than the present to follow Maisy in this well-executed concept outing.(Board book. 2-4)

Publishers Weekly
Youngsters learn to tell time with a favorite mouse in Maisy's First Clock by Lucy Cousins. "8 0'clock Good morning, Maisy!" This oversize board book chronicles the major moments in Maisy's day; a clock with movable hands and colorful gears peeks out of die-cut circles, and children can place the hands to match the picture on the opposite page. (Apr.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Our British friends have contributed another character and well-designed book package for American youngsters. Maisy the Mouse is not Mickey Mouse cute, but she has a certain long-nosed, bewiskered charm. Cousins's copyrighted font is clear and bold, easy to read, and with personality. Her child-like illustrations are painted with bright verve. The plot of this sturdy board book is simple and keyed around a rather marvelous clock built into the book. It has visible gears that turn, and makes a satisfying clicking sound when used. This is a pretty good tool for teaching little ones that time was not always measured digitally. 2002, Candlewick,
