Maisy Mouse is going to bake a cake. Let's join her in the kitchen to see how this is done.

First Maisy puts on an apron and she washes her hands. Then she gets all of her ingredients together. She gets eggs and butter out of the fridge and sugar and flour out of the cupboard. Now it is time to measure her ingredients. Maisy wants to be sure that she just the right amount. After that is done, Maisy begins to mix everything together and the fun really begins!

In this delightful novelty book, little children will get to participate in Maisy's cooking adventure by pulling tabs and lifting flaps. As always, Lucy Cousins' mouse is a wonderfully cheerful character who endears herself to her readers, and who makes story time so enjoyable.
