Author(s): Lucy Cousins
In the eighth title in the popular "Maisy First Experiences" series, Maisy and Cyril catch a train to the seaside where they enjoy a fun-filled holiday. Each of the "First Experiences" series describes a common first experience within Maisy's familiar and comforting world, offering a reassuring picture of something that might be new or less familiar. In "Maisy Goes on Holiday", Maisy enjoys packing her suitcase, then meeting Cyril at a busy station and catching a train to the seaside. They have lots of fun on the beach and at the cafe, write postcards to their friends and finally sleep a peaceful night at their hotel (after bouncing on the beds, of course). This title strikes the perfect balance of excitement and reassurance as Maisy travels to pastures new. Every page is packed with colourful activity and buzzing with life. A global phenomenon, Maisy books have won several major awards, sold over 21 million copies worldwide and are available in 29 different languages.
