Maisy and her friends are going on a treasure hunt. The animals have to find three keys before they can open the treasure chest and it is up to the reader to help Maisy find the keys.

Each key is hidden on the pages of this wonderful outsized board book. The reader has to lift the flaps and listen to the clues given in the text to find the keys. There are forty flaps in the book which means that there is a lot for little fingers to explore. Best of all there is a celebration to be enjoyed once the keys are found and the treasure chest is opened.

This bright and colourful book featuring one of the most beloved of mouse characters is sure to delight Maisy fans. With sturdy boards and flaps it is ideal for little children and it encourages lots of ideas for imaginative play.
