What did you like about the book?   Sturdy board pages and lots of tabs to slide make this a fun addition to Maisy’s adventures.  When Cyril’s car breaks down, it is towed to Maisy’s Garage.  Readers can back the tow truck up, move the car up on a lift, hoist the engine up, and make the wipers swish back and forth while the headlights go off and on.  After all is done, a large tab allows readers to send Cyril off on his way.   

Anything you didn’t like about it? No
