MAISY BIG MAISY SMALL doesn't disappoint. It is a large, colorful, simple to understand and enjoyable book. It presents opposites ("Maisy tall....Maisy short", etc.) - with Maisy as the main character and her friends joining in.
The only reason I didn't add a fifth star is that my little one LOVES the pull-tab books of Maisy, so her interest was lost in the book a little sooner than with other Maisy books (of course, this was after reading it every night for more than two weeks and then sporadically after that).
Again, it is a large lap book. The colors are invigorating. The scenes are delightful. Not much reading required. Older infants and toddlers will most certainly gravitate to this book because of its color, and fun and simply-drawn characters.
The idea of this book is very simple. On the left page, a concept is presented such as "Maisy fluffy." On the right is this opposite, in this case, "Maisy spiky." It's the book's amazing illustrations that bring it to life. Despite their seemingly (deceptively so) style, they burst with excitement and interest. One of the best is "Maisy happy" and "Maisy sad." The left page is a very happy Maisy against a background of an explosion of bright colors, hearts and other symbols, while the left is a sad Maisy against a gray background.
On the book jacket, Cousins comments that she "had so much fun painting Maisy in ways I'd never seen her before." Overall, this is a great success and all fans of Maisy will enjoy seeing her in these new and exciting ways.
