Maisy and Charley are visiting the city for the weekend - how exciting! They are met at the coach station by their friend Dotty, who shows them around... What noisy traffic! What giant buildings! So many flashing lights! And everywhere is so crowded - even the park. As Maisy and Charley explore, they go down into the underground, up an escalator in a department store - where for a moment Maisy even gets a bit lost - and see all the colourful sights in the wonderful bustling city.
Maisy and her alligator friend, Charley, visit Dotty the donkey in the city, where they discover busy streets with noisy cars, giant buildings, and lots of shops, including an enormous toy store where Maisy momentarily gets lost. Cousins's familiarly sturdy gouache scenes, rendered in bright primary colors, pair with simple sentences in a playful font ("They squish into the subway car. Hang on tight, everyone!"). As ever, Cousins paints a vibrant, tangible, and inviting world for preschool-aged readers. Ages 3 up.

Err what sample?
Word of warning to people with slow or limited data use. DO NOT download the sample. It is three pages long and all you get is the front cover one blank page and then a page offering you to buy the full copy!!! What a joke. I won't be buying the book because of this so well done publishers.
