Lift the flaps with Maisy the mouse, every toddler's best friend, in this colourful first concepts book, winner of the 2000 Practical Pre-School Silver Award.

This ingenious, colourful lift-the-flap board book is the perfect first concept book for any Maisy fan. Several new concepts are introduced as Maisy and her friends do the gardening, paint pictures, dress up and play in the park. There are thirty-six differently-shaped flaps to lift, each double-page spread introducing a new concept: numbers, colours, shapes and opposites.

Industry Reviews

A bright and breezy lift-the-flap book... [with a] bold distinctive style ... Perfect for preschoolers. * Junior *

My grandson loves anything Maisy,


All of my grand children have loved Maisy, the baking one was the best!


Not so great


Our 17 month old son does not like this book at all, and usually he loves flap books. The book is too large for him to handle. We have had another large lift the flap book by another author though and he would happily flip through that on the floor. But this book does not interest him at all.

Lucy Cousins

About the Author

Lucy Cousins is one of today´s most acclaimed author-illustrators of children´s books. Her unique titles fascinate babies, toddlers, and preschoolers with their child-like simplicity, bold outlines, and vivid colours. The engaging adventures of characters such as Maisy reflect the familiar experiences that young children have every day. "Maisy does things that children all over the world do," Lucy Cousins says of her superstar mouse. "The way she dresses, the way she acts, are typical of children all over the world."

Where does the prolific Lucy Cousins, a mother of four children, find the energy? "I'm quite disciplined," she says of her productivity. "If I'm having an 'ideas' day, I just sit at my desk and draw and write until I feel something is happening-though I admit that this is usually helped by a cup of tea, some lively music, and an abundance of sunshine." As for outside inspiration, she says she's sometimes influenced by the work of other artists, as long as those artists are children. Says the author-illustrator, "I get more pleasure and inspiration from walking around a primary school than from any art gallery." While the character Maisy was born before any of her four children, Lucy Cousins says there is no doubt she can "create better books and stories now that I have the insight into children's minds that all parents have. It's like having a market research team in my own home!" During the creation of the My Cloth Books, for example, her daughter, Josie, who was seven months old, proved a helpful critic: "Josie looked at them and chewed them and did all the right things," the proud mother says. Lucy Cousins works from home in Hampshire, England.
