Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
It’s Christmastime, Maisy style, which means bright gouache images, friends, and oversize flaps that reveal surprises. As Maisy wraps presents, readers can peek inside the packages to find a truck, guitar, and tennis racket. Sparkly decorations adorn Maisy’s cupboard and tree, and shiny treats hide inside a red and yellow stocking. Maisy’s fans will enjoy having the childlike mouse as a guide to holiday traditions. Ages 3–up. (Sept.)

Jingle those bells and bust out the eggnog -- that mah-velous mouse is back for the holidays! Maisy celebrates Christmas with her usual flair, wrapping presents, decorating the tree and baking sweet goodies. This engaging book allows kids to pull the tabs and lift the many flaps that reveal hidden surprises, including an adorable little bird that "tweets" on every page. Youngsters will be mesmerized by the sparkly illustrations against Maisy's trademark bold colors. Maisy, decked out in a festive red top and green striped pants, brings added excitement to this special holiday as she bustles about adorning her house with cheer. When Christmas morning arrives, her stocking is full of gifts. And there is another surprise waiting at the door -- all her pals! They join in the joyous celebration, sharing their gifts and dressed to the nines. Maisy will charm readers as she appears in her 'jammers and a t-shirt reading "I Love Christmas." As if we couldn't tell, sweet Maisy. This lovable mouse is sure to bring a smile to the face of your little elf.

Maisy is getting ready for Christmas--she is wrapping presents, baking cookies and trimming a tree. On every page there are flaps for kids to lift. They show who is at the door, what is in the packages, and what is in Maisy's Christmas stocking. A little robin is also on every spread and kids will have fun finding this cute little bird. The simple, bold illustrations in bright colors have lots of appeal to new and old Maisy friends. 2000, Candlewick,
