This is a brilliant novelty alphabet book, featuring favourite children's character, Maisy.Maisy is having some imaginative alphabet fun with her friends. She sails in a boat, balances on an elephant's trunk, flies a kite, dresses up as a queen, rides a train and makes music. There are tabs to pull and flaps to lift and each letter is drawn as a capital and in lower case, with a word beside or beneath it. There's never been such an enjoyable way to learn the alphabet!

Bold, block-color paintings of Maisy the mouse and friends make up this very simple, very appealing alphabet book. Maisy is a happy little rodent with a cheeky smile who journeys (in many changes of clothing) through a landscape of other animals. On the first page, she is traveling by "Bb--boat"; she sees a patch of seaweed, which opens like a door to display a hidden "Cc--crab"; her yellow sail folds back to reveal that she is riding with a stowaway "Aa--alligator"; and a pull-tab sends a purple "Dd--dolphin" leaping from the blue water. Elsewhere, insects flap their wings, a kite flutters, Maisy's prominent orange whiskers twitch, and a tortoise and a squirrel strum at a ukulele and a violin while Maisy herself plays the xylophone. This clever, effective use of pop-ups and pull-tabs make this ABC book--and perhaps the ABCs themselves--memorable. (Baby to 4) --Richard FarrAbout the Author:
