Maisy's Fire Engine by Lucy Cousins

It's Maisy to the rescue in this delighful fire-engine shaped book of fun and learning! This attractive, shaped Maisy board book provides the perfect introduction to the theme of transport; it is die-cut in the shape of a bright red fire engine with Maisy waving along with her friend Cyril. Cyril checks the water in the fire hose, but he sprays it too near to a little black cat, who is scared and climbs onto a house. But brave firefighter Maisy fetches a ladder and brings her down again!


Children instantly find [Maisy] lovable and easily identify with her. * Child Education *
