From School Library Journal PreSchool-Two more board books featuring the lovable mouse. In the first title, youngsters are invited to play hide-and-seek with Maisy and her friends. Cousins's signature bold acrylic illustrations outlined in thick black lines depict familiar objects such as a bed, table, closet, and bathtub, all set against a solid white background. When they lift the sturdy flaps, children will find Maisy along with a squirrel, elephant, duck, and alligator all hiding under, inside, or behind these objects. With simple one-sentence questions, the second book invites readers to guess where Maisy lives by showing dwellings such as a henhouse, pigpen, doghouse, and stable. The appropriate animals are discovered underneath sturdy flaps: "Oink! The pigs live here" and "Arf! The dog lives here." The animal sounds and simple sentences are perfect for babies and toddlers, and the basic repetitive texts are suitable for sharing in lap-sit programs. Olga R.
