Cluck, cluck, cheep, cheep! Count from one to ten with Maisy in a farmyard game of hide-and-seek.
It’s bedtime, but where have all of Mommy Hen’s chicks gone? Maisy is quickly on the case to find them, and little readers can help, too—by lifting the flaps to see who’s hiding in the stable, by the tractor, or up in the apple tree. Will all ten chicks be safe and accounted for by the last turn of the page?

The counting combined with the flaps, appealing barnyard animals and varied farm locations make this an ideal counting companion to better known stories and songs, such as "Old MacDonald." A book that doesn't take any "cheep" shots at the material. —Kirkus Reviews
The simple text offers just enough narrative, along with plenty of opportunities for counting chicks and lifting flaps. Cousins’ distinctive gouache paintings define the characters and settings with her familiar bold black lines and bright colors. An interactive, large-format picture book from the popular Maisy series. —Booklist Online
It’s the simplest of concept books, but well executed. Large pages, friendly illustrations, old friends (Cyril, Charlie, Eddie, etc.), lots of white space, engaging flaps, cute hiding places, clearly labeled numerals, and a very simple story line—but there is one—all play very nicely together. —The Horn Book
Flaps are always popular with preschoolers, and the colorful, boldly outlined illustrations highlight the numbers. —School Library Journal
