KIRKUS REVIEW

The science is slight, but the pictures are bright and the tabs work in this movable addition to the Maisy juggernaut. The cheerful white mouse travels by foot, bicycle, sailboat, trolley, train, hot-air balloon and (in her dreams) rocket ship. Each spread features one pull-tab or wheel that sets her and her vehicle of choice on their way, along with three illustrated vocabulary words pertaining to that vehicle and a short explanation. How much will the Maisy audience understand of “Steam moves the pistons, turning the wheels”? Probably not too much, but the notion may stick, and turning the paper wheel does make the piston move. And there’s no beating a good loud “Toot! Toot!” As a genial introduction to locomotive technology and an outing with a favorite friend, this book gets where it’s going. (Pop-up. 3-6)
