Maisy the mouse makes gingerbread cookies and shares them with her friends Charley and Tallulah.
PreS In the first story, Maisy tries to come up with a unique dress-up idea for Tallulah's costume party. All of her friends have already arrived when, "In comes a zebra. Oh, it's Maisy!" In the second title, the endearing white mouse gathers the ingredients she needs and makes gingerbread cookies. As she's cleaning up the dishes, two friends arrive "Just in time for an afternoon snack." The simple texts and bright illustrations done in primary colors make these offerings appropriate for very young audiences. Good choices for laptime, but also suited to sharing in small group settings. Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY
