Maisie goes, but she doesn't come back
on 5 October 2011
We bought this book for our toddler before our first family holiday. We wanted to show him what a holiday was and what to expect. The book was great, as far as it went. Maisie packs her bag, gets on the train, goes to the seaside, sleeps in the hotel, goes to the beach. And then the book ends. It was difficult to show our little boy that we would be coming home again and we ended up having to draw some extra pages ourselves to complete the holiday experience. This is marketed as a 'first experience' book and as far as it went it was very good. There just wasn't quite enough of it.
