Maisy and her pals discover the magic of the big screen as they go to a movie theater for the first time.
Maisy and her friends are so excited! They’re going to see a fun adventure film. With tickets and snacks at the ready, they scramble for seats and settle in for the movie to begin. Cyril’s a little afraid of the dark, but Maisy is happy to hold his hand. When Eddie enthusiastically shouts at the screen, he quickly learns a lesson in movie etiquette! After little ones share this outing with Maisy, they’ll be raring to go on their own movie-theater adventure.
These are realistic situations that children will encounter firsthand when going to the cinema. ... Familiar primary-color gouache illustrations depict the action. ... Simple and true to the Maisy style, minus the lift flaps and pull tabs. An appealing addition. —School Library Journal
The illustrations’ strong, black lines and bold, flat colors are as attractive and familiar as Cousins’ characters. Young children will enjoy learning what to expect from their own first experiences as moviegoers. —Booklist Online
