Children's LiteratureMaisy, the delightful mouse made even more famous by becoming one of the featured stamps from the United States Postal Service's Favorite Children's Books series, is the star of this superlative children's pop-up book. The author, together with paper engineer David Hawcock, never takes a false step. The front cover features a turning wheel that shows thunderclouds with lightening, a snowflake, the sun, blowing leaves, a rain cloud, and a rainbow. The opening double-page spread introduces the topic of weather by having Maisy open the curtains to see what kind of day it will be. The second spread shows Maisy approaching a small shed at the beach. When a well-marked tab is pulled, Maisy flips over, disappears into the beach house, and emerges on the other side in her bathing suit! Including the cover, with its turning wheel, there are eight pages of movable treats. The book is well paced for surprises, in bright colors with cheerful messages and just the right number of things to see and talk about along the way. I cannot think of a more perfect movable book for youngsters three and up! 2006, Candlewick Press, Ages 3 up.
