Young Annabelle takes her baby sister Maisie for a ride in the Barbie Car...but they go farther than Mommy allows. Annabelle wants to show Maisie the beautiful gardens at Miss Millie's house. Maisie can't read the sign that warns, "Do Not Pick the Daisies, the Daisies are Mine!" So of course, she innocently picks a daisy. The ground opens up, swallowing Maisie. Annabelle and Miss Millie plunge in after her, and all three end up in Daisyland, where a scary wizard threatens to clip off Miss Millie's green thumb. But all is well after he takes a look at Maisie's sweet, innocent face. Meanwhile, Mommy and Daddy are frantically trying to find their daughters with the help of the whole neighborhood and Daddy's drone. When the girls and Miss Millie pop back up out of the ground, everyone is joyful and relieved. Miss Millie removes the sign and offers daisies to one and all.

Miss Millie loves people picking her flowers, just not the daisies. What happens when Maisie picks one because she can’t read the sign? I love the addition of modern technology - this time a drone - along with the fantasy element. The alliteration in the rhyming text may prove a challenge but will be fun to read aloud to the children. Cute illustrations by Jaime Buckley round out the experience. Fun for kids and adults alike. I received this book in return for an honest review. Full blog post (8 March): https://www.booksdirectonline.com/2019/03/adventures-with-annabelle-and-maisie-by-julie-wenzlick.html
Belle and Maisie go for a ride in their car but drive further from their home than they are allowed. They are going to visit Miss Mille McMill. Mille has a green thumb and everyone love her flowers. Mille is happy to let everyone pick flowers but she has one rule, never pick the daisies. The girls get to Mille’s and are picking flowers but little Maisie is too small to read and picks a daisy. All three fall into a sinkhole and we learn about Mille’s green thumb. The girls are on another magical adventure and they find themselves in a land of daisies with an upset wizard. But Maisie is a charmer and things work out. Of course there are a couple worried parents that have to send in a drone to find the girls but everything works out in the end. I love the illustrations and the adventures that the girls find themselves on. This is a beautiful story and one that any child will love. I recommend checking them out and getting a copy for a kid in your life. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
