KIRKUS REVIEW

Maisy, Cousins’ iconic mouse, decorates a Christmas tree with her entourage in this simple holiday offering.

On evergreen-tree–shaped board pages, Cyril the squirrel strings the lights, Charley the crocodile hangs candy canes, Eddie tops the tree with an angel, and more. Featuring bold black lines filled in with highly saturated planes of color, the art is as toddler-friendly and accessible as any of the many Maisy titles that have come before it. The text, drawn in the same thick line as the art, is one declarative sentence per page. The final scene of the gang caroling around the tree, complete with paper crowns from British Christmas crackers, is delightful.

Toddlers celebrating the holiday will enjoy opening this Christmas present again and again. (Board book, 18 mos.-3)
