Maisie

Maisie

Created by author and illustrator Aileen Paterson, Maisie Mackenzie is a mischievous kitten whose tales have made her an enduring Edinburgh icon. Her picture adorns the side of the number 5 bus to the Edinburgh suburb of Morningside, where she lives.

The illustrated children’s series begins with Maisie Comes to Morningside, in a world where the locations are real but the characters are cats and other animals. Maisie’s mischievous nature gets her into all sorts of scrapes and adventures around Edinburgh and Scotland, and in travels abroad.
