Bold, block-color paintings of Maisy the mouse and close friends make up this very simple, actually appealing alphabet book. Maisy can be a happy tiny rodent using a cheeky smile who journeys (in many changes of clothing) by way of a landscape of other animals. Elsewhere, insects flap their wings, a kite flutters, Maisy's prominent orange whiskers twitch, and a tortoise and a squirrel strum at a ukulele and a violin while Maisy herself plays the xylophone. On the first page, she is traveling by"Bb--boat"; she sees a patch of seaweed, which opens like a door to display a hidden"Cc--crab"; her yellow sail folds back to reveal that she is riding using a stowaway"Aa--alligator"; as nicely as a pull-tab sends a purple"Dd--dolphin"leaping from the blue water. (Baby to 4) --Richard Farr This clever, effective use of pop-ups and pull-tabs make this ABC book--and possibly the ABCs themselves--memorable.
