On Order



In two brand-new adventures familiar to children who watch Maisy on Nick Jr., Maisy and her friends act out the lively adventures young children have -- or dream of having -- every day. In Maisy Drives the Bus, Maisy visits each bus stop to pick up passengers. Who's waiting at the stops? Preschool fans will be thrilled to climb aboard for the ride and find out. And in Maisy Takes a Bath, Tallulah doesn't want Maisy to take a bubble bath just now. She wants her to come out and play instead. What will Maisy's friends do next? Here are two more very good reasons to be crazy for Maisy!

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Maisy's fans will not be disappointed by either of these titles. In Bus, a simple concept book, the little mouse proves to be a very responsible driver. At each of the first four stops, she picks up an animal friend. At the fifth, she drops them all off, making sure she doesn't leave anyone behind. While Maisy Takes a Bath, Tallulah, a chicken, impatiently waits for her friend to come out and play. Eventually, she hops right into the tub with Maisy. The protagonist has a charming personality with plenty of sparkle. Both books feature bright colors; clearly defined, recognizable objects; and lots of repetition. Great fun for storytimes and lap sharing.-Susan Marie Pitard, Weezie Library for Children, Nantucket Atheneum, MA (c) Copyright 2010.
