Maisy Goes to the Local Bookstore

Written by: Lucy Cousins

First line: Today Maisy is going to the local bookstore.

Why you should read this book: Exactly what it says on the tin: a popular cartoon mouse visits a hip local bookstore where the bookseller apparently doesn't care if little kids come in and treat the place like a library where they can take all the books down from the shelf and read them in entirety without buying. The bookseller even offers storytime, in case the kids haven't gotten enough free books, and of course there's a café, because you can't spend a day reading new books without tea and pastries. Eventually Maisy actually does buy a book, probably to the bookseller's great relief, which she then gives to her only friend who didn't happen to be in the store with her that day.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You're not hanging out with a 3-year-old.
