The train is at the station, and Maisy Mouse is going to drive it. The whistle blows, Maisy’s friends climb on board, and the train is off. Chugging along the tracks the train travels out into the countryside and it goes past a family of geese floating in a pond, past a goat standing on a hill, past a rabbit sitting at the bottom of a hill, and through a tunnel. What will Maisy and her friends see next on their journey?

Little children who like trains are sure to love this “Maisy Shaped Board Book.” The simple narrative and brightly colored illustrations perfectly suit little children, who will enjoy turning the board pages for themselves, and following Maisy’s little adventure.
