KIRKUS REVIEW

Cousins’s beloved pink-nosed mouse develops a literary bent in this latest offering in the popular series. Maisy introduces young readers to the many wonders waiting to be discovered in the local public library. In her quest to locate a story about fish, Maisy explores the variety of books as well as the special services provided by libraries, such as computers, copiers and music. Cousins includes typical Maisy capers to keep the youngest readers giggling throughout. When Maisy’s friends join her at the library, noisy adventures ensue and the young mouse finds it difficult to find a quiet reading place. By tale’s end Maisy has her special spot—outside—and readers have learned about all the fun they can enjoy inside. The vivid colors coupled with simple line drawings of the engaging characters are designed to capture a toddler’s eye, offering old friends and newcomers something to check out. (Picture book. 2-5)
