Best-selling Maisy is back in a fabulous new, all singing all dancing Pop-up- and-Play title. Maisy and her friends are putting on a show and through a number of tabs and flaps young readers can make them twirl and whirl as they practise for the great moment. As ever, Maisy is a great character and her friends are delightful.

The LoveReading Comment:

To celebrate 20 years of Maisy, this book is without doubt the biggest, brightest, sparkliest and most interactive Maisy book yet so jump in and join Maisy and her friends as they don their costumes and hit the stage for all sorts of fun. Pull the tabs on every page and at the end you'll find an absolutely fabulous 3-d pull-out stage. Maisy has surpassed herself.

Synopsis

Maisy's Show by Lucy Cousins

Join Maisy and her friends as they hit the stage for music, magic and dancing! Come into the theatre and step behind the scenes in the biggest, brightest, sparkliest pull-the-tabs Maisy book yet. In this classic interactive title, Maisy and her friends put on their costumes to rehearse for - and then put on - a show-stopping performance. See Eddie the elephant tossing a ball! Watch Charley flip right over! And be prepared for a dazzling, all-singing all-dancing surprise finale...This is a third brilliant pop-up-and-play book to follow the popular Maisy's House and Garden play set and Maisy's Farm play set. It includes interactive pull tabs and fantastic sparkly foil-trimmed 3D pull-out stage scene. It is something truly special for children aged 3+.

About the Author

Lucy Cousins

Lucy Cousins was born in 1964, attending a school in Kent. After doing a foundation course at Canterbury College, Lucy did a BA Honours in Graphic Design, followed by a postgraduate degree at the Royal College of Art.

Lucy finds that illustration comes more easily to her than writing, which tends to work around the drawings. "I draw by heart," she says. "I think about what children would like by going back to my own childlike instincts." And what instincts they are! Lucy now has more than 12 million books in print, including picture books, sticker books, cloth books, colouring books, board books, pull-the-tab and lift-the-flap books, three-dimensional play sets, a clock book... Where does the prolific Lucy - 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."
