Maisy’s Fairground: A Maisy Pop-Up-and-Play Book

Lucy Cousins. Candlewick, $34.95 (16p) ISBN 978-0-7636-6491-6
Maisy and her friends—including Charley the crocodile, Eddie the elephant, and Tallulah the chick—enjoy a day at the fair, going on rides and playing games together. Via tabs, readers can help the animals gently collide in bumper cars (“Whee! Thump! Bump!”), bounce in a “bouncy castle,” swing wildly on a swing ride, travel down a slide, and follow the ups and downs of a roller coaster. The final spread features a rotating pop-up Ferris wheel (“Phew! Wow! Whoopee!”). Cousins offers high-energy descriptions of each activity: “Swing that hammer, Eddie. Ring-a-ding the bell! Watch the giant swings go up high, then down low.” The bright colors, familiar characters, onomatopoeic prose,and satisfying interactive effects provide an exuberant peek into both the sights and the sounds of the fair. Ages 2–5. (June)
