Maisy Goes to the City

Lucy Cousins. Candlewick, $12.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-7636-5327-9
Maisy and her alligator friend, Charley, visit Dotty the donkey in the city, where they discover busy streets with noisy cars, giant buildings, and lots of shops, including an enormous toy store where Maisy momentarily gets lost. Cousins's familiarly sturdy gouache scenes, rendered in bright primary colors, pair with simple sentences in a playful font ("They squish into the subway car. Hang on tight, everyone!"). As ever, Cousins paints a vibrant, tangible, and inviting world for preschool-aged readers. Ages 3–up. (June)
