Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
Maisy fans will welcome this latest title just right for bedtime sharing. The day has come to an end, the moon has risen, and it is time for sleep. Maisy reads to Panda, climbs the stairs to bed, and sings a lullaby to Panda before snuggling down under the covers. While Maisy and Panda sleep, the silver moon and stars shine down on them. Simplicity and sweetness combine in this charming little story. Bright crayon colors outlined in black are muted to convey a sense of calm and peace at the end of day. Parents will want to share this gentle story with their little ones at day's end. Originally, a picture book and a book that came with a light, this new board book format will work just as well for little ones. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey

Kirkus Reviews
Cousins produces a sweet evening serenade for toddlers. After frolicking about with good friends all day, Maisy bids them farewell at dusk to begin her nightly ritual. Story time leads to a gently sung lullaby for Panda and then it's lights out for Maisy and her best stuffed pal. Although the text retains Cousins's de rigueur simplicity, she branches out in a more poetic direction as she describes the evening and Maisy bathed in moonlight. The illustrations, too, show a slight departure from typical her typical fare. The bright palette of primary colors rendered in gouache is still apparent, as are the familiar, beloved characters. However, in the sunset scenes the sky is no longer the characteristically flat canvas of color. Instead, it's an array of mixed hues and textures. These subtle changes add a new vibrancy to this favored series. A welcome addition to the legion of Maisy adventures. (Picture book. 2-5)
