Board book: Maisy's Bus
First sentence: Today Maisy is driving her bus to the beach.
Premise/plot: Where will Maisy and her friends end up?
My thoughts: Books starring Maisy abound both in board book and picture book format. In this one, a Maisy shape book, Maisy is driving her bus and picking up all her friends for an adventure. My first thought, as an adult reader, is WHY does Maisy own a bus? Is Maisy old enough to drive a bus? Why is Maisy just learning to swim and having her first sleepover yet still somehow able to drive a bus?! Wouldn't it make more sense if Maisy was a passenger on a bus like all of her friends?! But I admit I might be thinking a little too much about it.
