School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1 Sweet Maisy the mouse returns in familiar, primary-colored gouaches heavily outlined in black. In the first book, she gets ready for bed, finds her misplaced Panda, and, at the last minute, the pair remember to use the toilet. The second book is a real charmer. Maisy's pal Tallulah helps set up and repair a wading pool; then the girls team up with Eddie the elephant so that all three can cool off. Both titles show toddler-empowering vignettes; Maisy's Pool offers just enough plot and tension to appeal to rookie readers as well.
