Amazon.com Review

"Who's that hiding under the table?" Maisy and her friends are playing hide-and-seek. Share in Maisy's delight as she finds Charlie the crocodile (in plaid Bermuda shorts!) under the bed, Cyril the squirrel behind the shower curtain, and Eddie the elephant squeezed into the closet. Each big, easy-to-grip flap lifts to reveal another hidden friend. Fans of funny little Maisy mouse will love this simple interactive board book based on every preschooler's favorite game. As in Lucy Cousins's many other picture books, the bold, bright illustrations are outlined in heavy black, framed cleanly in white. The repetitive text ("Who's that hiding...?") will appeal to early readers as they begin to match the words to the pictures. Seek out all the rest of the absolutely charming Maisy books, including Maisy Takes a Bath, Maisy Goes to School, and Maisy Goes Swimming. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Two more board books featuring the lovable mouse. In the first title, youngsters are invited to play hide-and-seek with Maisy and her friends. Cousins's signature bold acrylic illustrations outlined in thick black lines depict familiar objects such as a bed, table, closet, and bathtub, all set against a solid white background. When they lift the sturdy flaps, children will find Maisy along with a squirrel, elephant, duck, and alligator all hiding under, inside, or behind these objects. With simple one-sentence questions, the second book invites readers to guess where Maisy lives by showing dwellings such as a henhouse, pigpen, doghouse, and stable. The appropriate animals are discovered underneath sturdy flaps: "Oink! The pigs live here" and "Arf! The dog lives here." The animal sounds and simple sentences are perfect for babies and toddlers, and the basic repetitive texts are suitable for sharing in lap-sit programs.

These Maisy books are so colourful and have very simple pictures that are great for my 16 month old. It also has really bold brilliant colours to help toddlers learn their colours!

It's yet quite as popular as "Where Does Maisy Live", but adorable. I bought 2 of these, one for my son and one for a baby shower. Most people don't have Maisy books, if you are looking for something to give and don't want to duplicate. These are board books so they are great for ages 0-4 years of age. Also, Maisy is gender neutral.

We own hundreds and hundreds of books, but if I had to choose 20 to recommend to a pregnant friend, this would have to be on that list. My son adored this little mouse, who has just the right level of surprise for a toddler. It absolutely cracks him up.

My daughter, the 2-year-old Maisy fan, has not been disappointed by this one. All of Maisy's friends are hiding, and somehow, she finds them all... including Maisy herself at the end!

My little girl loves Maisy books, especially the lift the flap books.

I found out that they also read them in daycare. I went in daycare once and started reading my baby a Maisy book and all the other babies came up and sat right in front of me. It couldn't have been done with any other book.

My 22 month old LOVES Maisy and the simple and repetitive lift the flap books. And now I finally know the names of the Maisy's friends (our first Maisy book mentions them en masse but not individually). We have several of the lift the flap books and all are equally fun for her.

I would have preferred to have the animal type named rather than it's name. For example, in the book it says "Who's that hiding under the bed? It's Charley." I would have liked the answer to be : "It's a crocodile" etc. Book is well made and should last well.

This book was for my granddaughter. She loves Maisy and it is very hard to find books or DVDs in the stores. She was very happy to receive this book. It came quickly, in good condition and the best part for me was that there was no shipping charge.
