"I draw by heart," says Maisy creator Lucy Cousins. "I think of what children would like by going back to my own child-like instincts." And what instincts! With more than 28 million copies sold around the world, Lucy Cousins's Maisy books have been consistently on target when it comes to engaging children. One of the most beloved characters in preschool households today, the good-natured Maisy stars in storybooks, sticker books, a sturdy clock book, mini board books, big flap books, and three-dimensional playsets. Maisy also has her own popular TV show. Her everyday exploits-- familiar to preschoolers everywhere-- gently usher little ones into an exploration of early learning concepts such as colors, numbers, and social themes. Reviewers have called Lucy Cousins´s Maisy titles "delightful books that reinforce the concept of helping and sharing," while teachers and parents alike find Maisy books to be a bright and playful way to offer a solid educational foundation.
