Best-loved Maisy has a new adventure in this riotous pull-out and pop-up story. Maisy and her friends are off to the Funfair. Pull the tabs and watch them bump and thump on the bumper cars, bounce up high on the bouncy castle and swoosh up and down on the thrilling roller-coaster.


Maisy's Funfair A Maisy Pop-Up-and-Play Book by Lucy Cousins

Another fantastic interactive title from Maisy with exciting pull-outs and a spectacular pop-up finale! Maisy and all her friends are very excited - tonight they're off to the funfair! From the dodgems and the coconut shy, to the bouncy castle, the helter skelter and having a screeeeeaaam on the roller coaster. What fun they will have!

Brimming over with witty pull-tabs showing Maisy and her friends bashing cars on the dodgems, bouncing on the bouncy castle, swinging on the swings, hurtling down the helter skelter, squealing on the roller coaster and flying high on the big wheel.

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."
