A merry novelty book invites little ones to celebrate Christmas with Maisy and friends.
What kinds of Christmas gifts has Maisy brought for her friends Eddie, Charley, Tallulah, and Cyril? With the lift of a flap or the pull of a tab, children uncover each surprise. As for Maisy's present, they can help pick it out themselves with the turn of a wheel. And in true holiday spirit, Maisy has tucked a little something extra in a final fold as a gift to her readers.
