Just Like Maisie Book Trailer

This story is very engaging and sure to delight children. As a mother, teacher, writer and illustrator of children's books, I highly recommend this story. It even had me laughing at the antics of Maisie. I could see the children listening to the text with total engagement, as they searched the beautiful illustrations for Maisie.

Maisie is so cheeky and cute as she entertains plans to travel abroad alongside her owners, Mr and Mrs Harris. Following Maisie's adventurous spirit across some of Europe's most iconic places, I especially love Maisie dropping in at the Eiffel Tower. You can't help but smile as you spot some of her comical disguises and see how Maisie baffles Mr and Mrs Harris along the way.

It's a really funny book. Maisie fooled Mr and Mrs Harris. They had no idea Maisie was with them all the time.

I have several grand children aged 3-6 years and bought books for each of them. The feedback is how much they loved Maisie's cheeky travels - even looked up (with their mums help) where the different locations were. It is fun, educational - and Maisie is just a tiny bit naughty which appeals to this age group. Great for the young ones.

My daughter picked up 'Just Like Maisie' in the library and wanted to bring it home. We bought it home and had to read it every night for weeks. She loves saying 'just like Maisie' and we say it together as we're reading. Thanks for the lovely reads Lyn!

This early readers book can be likened to ‘Where’s Wally’. ... Author and teacher Lyn Lysaught, has created a comical travel story. The antics of Maisie in disguise shows an ingenious beagle — wearing a dark coat and dark sunglasses at the park – like an undercover agent, on stage as a can-can girl in a pink frilly dress – as a dancer. The scenes are joyous and will have young readers from 3 years thinking up other disguises, situations and locations for Maisie. This delightful book is a great way to introduce narratives to children so they can write their own imaginative stories.
