Playing hide-and-seek is something that Maisy mouse loves to do, and she wants us to join her in a game. Maisy is going to hide and we have to try to find her.

   Here is a little house. Is Maisy inside? When we open the window shutters of the house we see that Cyril the squirrel is looking out at us with a smile on his face. “Oops!” Clearly Maisy is not here.

   Later on we come to a brown barn. We see something poking out of the top of the barn door. Is Maisy behind the door? All we have to do is open the door to see what or who is there.

   Children are going to have a grand time looking for Maisy in this lift-the-flap board book. Grownups can share in the fun by asking their children if they can guess what is behind the flaps on the spreads.
