Maisy has been on a trip and now she is home. With her Maisy has brought presents for all her best friends. Let's open the packages to see what Eddie the elephant, Tallulah the chicken, Cyril the squirrel, and Charlie the alligator have been given.

By opening flaps, pulling tabs, unfolding and exploring, little children will be able to see the thoughtful and wonderful gifts that Maisy has brought home with her. By turning a dial they can see what Cyril, Charley, Eddie and Tallulah are thinking of giving to Maisy for a present, as a thank you for her kindness. Last, but my no means least, there is a little gift for the reader.

This is a charming celebration of the joy of giving gifts and showing love for ones friends through the act of giving. Children will see that though it is wonderful to receive gifts, it is also exciting and great fun to give them as well.
