When pre-schooler Annabelle awakens one morning, she has a strange urge to start doodling.
She calls for paper and pen and begins doodling continuously, unable to stop—even for meals! Her concerned parents take her to the doctor, who discovers a doodlebug bite on her neck.
He assures them her doodling urges will end when the bite fades away. Annabelle gets so good at doodling she opens a shop to sell her work and even travels the world to share her art.

Then one day the bite fades and so do her uncontrollable urges.

After sisters Annabelle and Maisie meet the gigglepuss outside on the trampoline, they suddenly can’t stop giggling. Their dad has a hard time believing they met a gigglepuss, calling it “mythical nonsense.” But as time passes and they giggle harder and harder, there’s no choice but to take them to the doctor, who provides an unpleasant but effective remedy. Wonder who else in the family will encounter that rascally gigglepuss?

When big sister Annabelle decides to go against Mom’s rules and take little sister Maisie Grace for a ride in her pink Barbie Corvette, she has no idea of the adventure that lies ahead!  Join these wandering sisters as they explore Miss Millie’s garden and fail to obey the sign: Do NOT pick the Daisies!  What will happen when Maisie unknowingly plucks one daisy from the garden?


I enjoyed reading all three stories. The books are unique and very sweet. I love that it was written in rhymes, you can't help but smile when reading. The stories have all the elements of classic children's book: lovely story, great storytelling, and beautiful illustration. 
I read to my niece and she liked reading part of the stories herself. (English is not our first language and she is just now learning- the stories was perfect for her.). 

The Day Maisie Picked a Daisy was my favorite of the three. Girls take pink corvette and drive toward adventure. It's a very unique story, very imaginative and magical- all the thing that make childhood so special. :)

The Day Maisie and Annabelle got the Giggles was the funnies. Girls meet gigglepuss while playing on the trampoline and got the giggles. When giggles didn't stop, parents took them to the doctors and he recommended a very unique cure. :)

The Day Annabelle Was Bitten by a Doodlebug was the sweetest. One day Annabelle wakes up with an urge to doodle. And she doesn't stop, doodling everywhere, even seeling her art until the feeling fades. 

Happy reading,
