Cousins, Lucy Maisy’s Plane Candlewick Press, 2014. $5.99 BOARD BOOK Content: G.
Maisy the mouse is driving her propeller plane to a party. She says hello to the sun, clouds and a friend in a hot air balloon. Then she lets out a banner off the back of her plane that wishes her friend, Eddie a happy birthday. She lands her plane and joins the birthday party.
In typical Maisy style, the illustrations are bright cartoons with easy to read text. The storyline felt a little disjointed and the reader needed to have a prior knowledge of the characters in Maisy’s world to appreciate what was going on. But the fun airplane ride and cute pictures will still appeal to younger audiences.
