I give it 3 stars because it was not really interesting . It wasn't interesting because there was not really a story. ( )

So far Babymouse has been a graphic novel series I've only read in the context of being a Cybils judge. Coming in to the series so late and not being a fan of the color pink has made me a reluctant reader. I have decided to give the series a go while not acting as a judge to see if I can come to appreciate it on my own terms.

Babymouse: Beach Babe by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm is the second book in the series. In it Babymouse is waiting for the start of summer while day dreaming of surfing waves the size you only see at places like Mavericks.

After cleaning out her locker (in which she uncovers all sorts of odd things including some mythical creatures), Babymouse gets the great news that her family will be spending the summer at the beach. It does mean a long car ride with baby brother Squeak who gets car sick but it's worth it.

Babymouse gets to try surfing, snorkeling, hunting for shells, sandcastle building and all sorts of other beach activities. Through out her imagination gets away with her. Brother Squeak gets underfoot but ultimately Babymouse learns that her brother is the perfect person to pal around with.

Babymouse: Beach Babe is so far one of my favorites from the series. It has a coherent story line and Babymouse is presented as a charming and sympathetic character instead of lazy and demanding as she sometimes is. I'm still not fond of the excess of pink but I'm willing to accept that it's part of the graphic design for the series. ( )

This graphic novel series is a good way to get a reluctant reader started. The main caharacter, Babymouse, is a likeable young mouse who has lots of little adventures, mostly in her imagination. Jennifer Holm and Matthew Holm, the authors, use pink to indicate Babymouse's dream sequences and that makes it easier to follow. These books are good for 2nd grade readers and up because the text is easy to read (in comic-like form) and the stories are ones that kids can easily relate to.

BabyMouse Beach Babe by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm is a fun, graphic novel that introduces this genre in a exciting way. The story will be sure to make students laugh as well as value their siblings or younger cousins in the end. ( )

Simple, easy to follow characters and plot make this an enjoyable graphic novel for beginning female readers. ( )
