Let’s go! Maisy loves things that move. With the help of fun tabs, little readers can learn the simple workings of her favorite modes of travel.

How does a sailboat sail? What makes the train wheels turn? Why does a hot-air balloon rise high in the sky? Like all small children, Maisy is curious about how things go. And with this truly delightful interactive book, readers not only find out some answers, they also have a part in the action—pulling tabs to make Maisy walk or pedal a bike, rock a boat on the waves or make sparks appear on a trolley cable. The final spread offers a special surprise: a big, bright pop-up that’s out of this world.
