Lucy Cousins outdoes herself with this big, bold, brilliant visit to Maisy's dream world—a kaleidoscopic journey filled with familiar friends and fantastical creatures.
Maisy is fast asleep in her little bed.
Suddenly a dream begins inside her head.
When Maisy dreams that she's going on a journey, it's only natural that all her friends come along, too. Maisy dreams about a red ladybug, and there's Charley flying by with a ladybug umbrella. She dreams of a big orange fish, and she and Panda grab a fin and float along. Soon things get even more amazing—a turtle with a shell made of watermelon, a winged clock with the legs of a bird. And when Maisy finally reaches Rainbowland—well, it must be seen to be believed! Little fans will be reassured to see that Maisy's dreams are much like theirs—incredible journeys to places where the everyday world is transformed by the wondrous workings of the imagination.

Lucy Cousins is one of today's most acclaimed young author-illustrators of children's books. Her unique titles instantly engage babies, toddlers, and preschoolers with their childlike simplicity, bold outlines, and crayon-bright colors. "I draw by heart," she says. "I think of what children would like by going back to my own childlike instincts." And what instincts! The winsome exploits of characters such as Maisy — now featured in more than fifty books — reflect the familiar adventures that young children have every day. "Maisy does things that children all over the world do." Lucy Cousins says. "The way she dresses, the way she acts, are typical of children all over the world." The mother of four young children, Lucy Cousins works from home in Hampshire, England."From Booklist:
Reviewed with Lucy Cousins' What Are you Doing Maisy? and Where You Going, Maisy?
PreS. Television star Maisy Mouse's legions of small fans will delight in these new adventures. Rainbow Dream, an oversize picture book, follows Maisy through a wild dreamtime journey to "Rainbowland," where she encounters whimsical, surreal swirls of ladybugs, fish, and other animals before she wakes to discover a sunny, beautiful day. What Are You Doing and Where Are You Going are small, square, lift-the-flap titles printed on thick paper that is perfect for toddlers' aggressive page turning. In both books, the title question appears on each left-hand page above a series of related objects (juice, apples, bread, and bananas in Where Are You Going ). On the right-hand page, a flap lifts to reveal the answer, such as "To the supermarket!" Cousins' signature artwork--bold, black outlines, simple shapes, and bright primaries--is as pleasing and attention grabbing as always. Rainbowland and the everyday activities in What Are You Doing and Where Are You Going will speak straight to a toddler's experience, with plenty of familiar images to point out and name aloud. Easy winners for the very young. Gillian Engberg
