KIRKUS REVIEW

Maisy the beloved mouse is back as you’ve never seen her before in this clever collection of opposites. Each oversized, full-bleed, double-page spread presents a pair of antonyms. Maisy takes her fans on a whirlwind tour of both common opposites (hot/cold, wet/dry, in/out) and novel ones (fluffy/spiky, squiggly/straight). Throughout, the familiar mouse changes location, activity, mood and, most dramatically, appearance—“Maisy spots / Maisy stripes.” Cousins’s gouache artwork is as colorful as ever, with simple lines and spare details that will appeal to young listeners and draw their attention to the unique features that identify the pair as opposites. Maisy fans will not be disappointed. (Picture book. 2-5)
