      Written by SAMUEL NARH | Illustrated by JO LORING-FISHER

      Winner Northern Lights Book Awards Family category

      As the seasons turn, Maisie rides her bull in and out of Dada’s tall tales. Her Mama wears linen and plays the viola. Her Dada wears kente cloth and plays the marimba. They come from different places, but they hug her in the same way. And most of all, they love her just the same. A joyful celebration of a mixed-race family and the love that binds us all together.

      'We found a kindred spirit in Maisie. She will make a generation of mixed kids feel more visible' – The Tiger Tales

      'Opens a window into what it can look and feel like to grow up in a biracial, multinational family that’s rich in story' – Kirkus Reviews, STARRED

      A beautiful story of family love

      I knew from the end pages that I was going to like this book. There was an instant feeling of authenticity and this flowed through the book. My favourite part was Jo’s beautiful illustration of Maisie and her dada looking at the night sky and seeing “turtles swinging on chandeliers”.

      Family life in vibrant colour

      Maisie and her family journey through the seasons, each moment of outdoor adventures and everyday experiences captured in gorgeous illustrations and gentle rhymes. Spring petals, summer sun, autumn leaves and winter celebrations are just the start. Particularly lovely is the scene at night on the beach, and the imaginary flights into the sky with Anansi, or to ancient worlds. And Maisie's rocking chair has especially magical powers! This book celebrates the loving bonds that families make through storytelling, exploring and doing daily tasks together - and how this process naturally helps children learn about the world and how we all make up its rich tapestry.

      Wonderfully written children’s book

      My family really enjoys reading Maisie’s Scrapbook before bedtime. The illustrations are beautiful and leave a lot to the readers imagination. Our favorite part is “They nag her in the same way.” It’s simply wonderful!
