There's a new heroine in town -- she arrived sometime before or after Santa did this past holiday. Her name is BABYMOUSE, and she's pert, saucy, full of imagination, a put-down attitude, but she must be pretty smart because she keeps puddles of books on the floor around her bed! There's a new heroine in town, she arrived sometime before or after Santa did this past holiday. Her name is BABYMOUSE, and she's pert, saucy, full of imagination, a put-down attitude, but she must be pretty smart because there are puddles of books on the floor around her bed! Babymouse finds her life a might dull each day - clean teeth, brush whiskers, yada - yada- yada! At school the same -- a locker that's stuck until she gives it a number of 'Bang Bangs', and oh dear, there's a library book overdue. And there goes her imagination¿ a tiara, flowers for her fame, she's become the Queen! Oops, not this time. But she'd settle for assistant queen. Uh, uh, no, no, -- according to everyone - Felicia Furrypaws is the Queen. But Babymouse has friends, like Wilson the Weasel, since kindergarten, who rescues her stuck locker and invites her over for movies. Speaking of movies, Babymouse's imagination is at work: '¿But in my line of work, you see it all. ¿suspicions ¿ clamming up¿ and Babymouse is a private investigator.' Wouldn't you know it, when a note gets passed in class through her, teacher pounces on Babymouse as the culprit¿ gulp! principal's office. Will she be invited to Felicia's slumber part? Maybe I can bribe her, she thinks. Hmm! Jennifer L. Holm & Matthew Holm are the illustrious creators, presenting their heroine's stories in cartoon cut-out fashion, in colors of white, pink, and black, with her name BABYMOUSE on the front cover, in shining silver! Young minds will cheer for Babymouse no matter what, and will think up ways on how they can help her meet her career goals!

Babymouse. A name that will be remembered by many. A sassy, cupcake-loving mouse with messy whiskers ("Hey!") and a spunky fashion sense. Dealing with dumb lockers, stupid buses, rude mean girl cliques, and annoying little brothers. Ah, a normal day in the life of Babymouse. I'm extremely glad that I randomly picked up a Babymouse book in my school library one day. Heck, I don't know when! Babymouse Queen of the World was a great read. The start of a truly amazing series. Some will underestimate Babymouse and her locker. Some will despise them. But I, for one, am on Team Babymouse. If you're looking for a bright, pink, spunky graphic novel, then DO NOT hesitate to pick up this book. If anyone asks any questions, then say, "Sssshhhh!! I'm READING HERE!!" and keep on reading. If you don't really like pink, but more of a green, look for Squish the amoeba! Wilson the Weasel is most likely the best friend ever. Felecia can go throw herself in a trash can. Penny Poodle has a nice hair-do and is quite a good musician. The locker is full of doom! Time-traveling, futuristic, surreal-- Babymouse is all of that summed up into about 99 pages. Annoying siblings-- Most of us it's 'been there done that'. Dumb lockers-- Middle-schoolers and High-schoolers will definitely get this grudge. Mean popular cliques-- Almost everyone has seen these. Nobody who has read any of the Babymouse series will say, 'Oh, it's just Babymouse.' I don't know anybody who doesn't love Babymouse. Sweet, sassy, spunky, cupcakes, lockers of doom, cliques, best friends, siblings. Only a few of the many words to describe Babymouse and her life. Babymouse is entertaining to young readers and older readers. Best. Book. Ever.

This is a fun book that girls will love. Babymouse learns a valuable life lesson about true friendship in vol. 1. The black and white graphics are interrupted by bubble-gum pink dreams Babymouse envisions.
sweetiegherkin on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
Babymouse thinks her life is boring, so she spends a lot of her time either daydreaming about grand adventures starring herself or wishing that Felicia, the most popular girl at school, would become friends with her. When Babymouse finally gets invited to a slumber party at Felicia¿s house, she realizes that Felicia is pretty boring and that her own life isn¿t as bad as she thought. The comic book format might take a bit of getting used to for some readers, but the main character, the story, and the colorful (pun intended) addition of pink to the otherwise black and white images all serve to open up the world of comic books to young girls. The book is delightfully cute and funny, has a strong message, and will remind readers of all the other types of fiction that are out there (mystery, horror, adventure, etc.) through Babymouse¿s wonderful imagination. The only down side is that the format makes this book rather difficult to be a read-aloud one.

This entire series is adorable and every young girl I have suggested it to has loved it. My daughter is counting the days until the next one comes out, and when it does I am sure once more her older sister and I will also borrowing it to see what Babymouse is up to next.A great book to get girls reading, and thinking about alternative formats like graphic novels.

This is a great, fun read. Babymouse is a bit of an eccentric, but wow, does she know what she likes! She has a great best friend, Wilson, but when the the most popular girl in school announces she's having a slumber party, Babymouse ditches her buddy for a chance to go. She does learn her lesson, and discovers her own awesomeness, tough!Good for discussing bullies, friendship, fairness, tolerance....

Once at the slumber party, she realizes she doesn't really like Felicia & her friends so she goes over to hang out with her best friend for the night.

This is the first of many Babymouse adventures. in this book Babymouse wants to be friends with the most popular girl in school Felicia Furrypaws. As she creates plots to get invited to Felicia's party, we venture through Babymouse's very vivid imagination. This story ends with the message to appreciate what you already have. The great illustrations actually let us see all the details that Babymouse envisons, and she envisions a lot. The illustrations only use 3 colors - black, white, and of course Babymouse pink!

Babymouse thinks her life is boring and wishes she could be "Queen of the World". The graphic novel tells the story about a little mouse who wants to be invited to Felicia Furrypaw's slumber party and goes as far as giving Felicia her book report in exchange for an invite. Once at the slumber party though, she realizes how mean Felicia and her friends are, so she leaves and hangs out with her best friend Wilson the Weasel and has so much more fun. This makes her realize that her life isn't so lame after all- she has a best friend she has fun with, plenty of cupcakes, and is oh so stylish-her life is perfect! A great story about friendship, a really enjoyable read.

Babymouse has a big dream of becoming the queen of the world. She day dreams in her middle school all the time. She makes friends with a weasel and another girl. She manages to get invited to a party where she accidentally spills the nail polish everywhere. She gets bored hanging out with the girl, and visits the weasel, and then she realizes that her life is not boring after all. The title of the book is indicative of how the babymouse is trying to get control of her own world. She daydreams al the time, and it seems that she lives in her very own world. The graphics are only in three colors--white, black and pink. The drawings are funny and interesting as well. The words are easy and humorous. So is the story line. The book is recommended for kids from grade 3 to 5. However, given the drawings and the main character, the book might be more attractive to girls than to boys.

I usually do not enjoy graphic novels, but this book was a pleasant surprise. It was funny and charming. I can see why so many of my students want to check this book out. The main character is funny and unique--she is a goofy, loud, mouse trying to stay true to herself in school and life. It is an easy read, but enjoyable. Younger students who want to read up enjoy how big the book looks, while older students who need an easier read will find the book manageable and funny. There is a whole series so once a student gets hooked they can enjoy many more stories to come.

Q5, P5A lighthearted Persepolis-esque book, for younger readers. Strong fem protagonist, life-lessons. Great dialogue.

I love Babymouse!!! This book is just such fun.
LaurenDoubleU on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
4Q, 5PNot a work of literary children's fiction likely to become a classic, but still a high-quality example of a graphic novel for the beginning reader, which seems to be a difficult genre to do well. It also portrays an adventurous, empowered, but not flawless female character.Likely to be very popular with elementary-aged children-- it's easy-to-read, humorous, imaginative, adventurous and with allusions to different kinds of stories/movie genres that are also popular.
