Maisy mouse loves music, and she enjoys playing in a band. Today the band members will be performing in a concert in the evening, so Maisy’s band mates come over to her house to practice. Maisy plays the drums, Charlie “strums” on his double bass, Tallulah plays the piano, Cyril blows into his trumpet, and Eddie the elephant plays the triangle. As they practice, various singers join in. Is everybody going to be ready for the concert?

Maisy mouse is a very gifted individual. In this book we find out that she is a musician, as are her best friends. With colorful illustrations, tabs to pull, and a splendid pop-up finale on the last page, this novelty title will charm young children.
