Maisy's Wonderful Weather Book
Publisher: Walker Books
Maisy returns, this time leaping out of bed and investigating weather with characteristic mouse-like joie de vivre.
What kind of day will it be? From sunshine at the beach, to snow in the garden, whether it's raining or blowing a gale, Maisy's ready.
Only the biggest, blackest thunderstorm keeps her indoors – and even then the sun comes out afterwards and there's a rainbow to chase.
Lucy Cousins' trademark bright boldness combined with quirky extra details is as cheerful as ever, with a well engineered pop-up per spread, demonstrating each weather-type.
Maisy's quick change in her beach-hut is especially good, as are the side panels highlighting items from each page with words printed beneath. Who said learning can't be fun?
