Maisy's Street by Lucy Cousins

A Maisy Concertina Book where - as in Maisy's Traffic Jam - the book opens to reveal a concertina page that unfolds to show a stunning, two-sided, metre-long street scene with fifteen flaps! Two metres of fabulous fold-out fun in this entertaining book. The hardback contains a concertina page to unfold, showing a busy two-sided street scene. On her way to Eddie's birthday party, Maisy passes the bakery, the florist, the library, the doctor's surgery, the cafe, Ostrich's house, Tallulah's house, the sweet shop, the shoe shop, the Post Office, the bank, an ice-cream van, the fishmonger, the vegetable stall and the fancy dress shop ... so much to look at, and so many friends to meet along the way!


Great value for money and hours of fun * Junior Magazine *
