It’s Christmastime, Maisy style, which means bright gouache images, friends, and oversize flaps that reveal surprises. As Maisy wraps presents, readers can peek inside the packages to find a truck, guitar, and tennis racket. Sparkly decorations adorn Maisy’s cupboard and tree, and shiny treats hide inside a red and yellow stocking. Maisy’s fans will enjoy having the childlike mouse as a guide to holiday traditions. Ages 3–up. (Sept.)
