What did you like about the book? Maisy and friends build Ella a new house in this board book with a variety of slides and wheels to manipulate. Readers can move a wheel to dump out dirt and mix cement, slide roof tiles back and forth from a crane, and more. The signature illustrations are filed with bright colors and expressive characters. A fun addition to the Maisy series for little ones.
