Gaily tied up with two red ribbons, Lucy Cousins's unusual, delightful, virtually wordless "book" is in fact a triple pop-up. When you open the covers (vertically, like a door, rather than horizontally), you are introduced to this endearing rodent's kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom, like three little dollhouses. In the boldly colorful kitchen is a pop-up table and chairs, and a pop-out-from-the-wall set of cabinets, complete with a range that opens to reveal a baking pie, and many other distractions. Turn the "page" and you come to a bathroom complete with a mirror on the wall, a liftable toilet seat, and a little figure of Maisy to stand in the shower stall. Each room comes with a sheet containing cut-out objects like clothing and small furnishings, to be arranged at will. In the bedroom, a tab turns a window scene from day to night and back again, and a clothes chest has real sliding drawers. Maisy is a character small children can fall in love with. Ingenious. (Ages 3 to 6) --Richard FarrFrom Publishers Weekly:
Q. What's more fun than a book bearing the distinctive Cousins touch? A. An entire domicile decorated in this author/ illustrator's well-known whimsical style. In this book cum dollhouse, would-be homemakers use the attached ribbons to tie together the book's covers, thereby forming a three-room abode (kitchen, bath and bedroom). For a guided tour, readers can consult the small booklet tucked into a kitchen windowbox, Maisy's Day, which locates Maisy the mouse herself-a cardboard Maisy with movable arms "hides" in the shower. Following the book's suggestions, kids help Maisy get dressed, take a bath, etc., in the process opening doors and drawers, turning down the bedspread, even pulling toilet paper (of the cardboard variety) from its dispenser. Press-out objects equip each room; these can be stored in cupboards, medicine chests, armoires and similarly convenient spots, while other nooks and crannies invite close exploration. Intriguing interactive interiors in one swell dwelling. Ages 3-up.
