When a kind-hearted young mouse with exquisite fashion sense and a big imagination tries to win an invitation to a slumber party hosted by the most popular girls in school, she learns that having real friends who value you for who you is what really makes life “royally” great. Drawn in thick black ink, this graphic novel reveals Babymouse’s bold but sweet personality through pink-hued fantasies starring Babymouse as Cinderella, a private eye, an astronaut, and more in between her real-life struggles navigating the ups and downs of school and friendship. These are definitely themes that readers of transitional books will relate to, and the graphic novel format provides a different kind of reading experience that is engaging without being too challenging, with creative, out-of-the-box use of panels but still grounded in simpler vocabulary and a greater picture-to-text ratio. It’s also extremely funny in Babymouse’s observations about her classmates, as well as little quips between Babymouse and the narrator and “reviews” of the novel from other characters in the book. It will most likely appeal to girls more than boys because of the appearance of the book (with its abundance of the color pink), but while the protagonist is a girl-mouse who likes dresses with little hearts, there is no romance or girly-ness of that kind, making this graphic novel series just a simply humorous portrayal of a sassy character who learns to like herself for who she is.

Babymouse wants to be popular and be (at least) assistant queen. She'd also like more time to read her fun books and less homework. However when she finally gets her chance to hang with "the queen", Felicia, she realizes the life she has is already pretty awesome.

Babymouse has a great imagination and often gets lost in her thoughts between classes. Those transitions were a little confusing the first time, but I caught on quick enough. ( )

Finally, a elementary reading level graphic novel geared towards girls! My resource room students love books that have lots of pictures and often need it to help with context, but are too old for baby books. This small, thick book makes them feel like they are reading a novel, but the expressive comic panels helps with their comprehension. The book is done all in black and white and pink, so it is a deterrent to my boys. I don't care much for the main character, who is stereotypically girlie, but if it interests my students, then I will supply it in my classroom! ( )

What a cool book for young readers! The pictures are perfect, and I love the lesson that you don't have to fit in with everybody, and who you are is just perfect. Babymouse was smart and fun and she was a loyal friend who valued true friendships over having a lot of "fake" friends.

As soon as I started reading Babymouse, it made me think of Junie B. Jones. Babymouse is a very energetic little mouse. She has a huge imagination and that sometimes gets her into trouble. There is very little color in Babymouse. Only black, pink, and white are present. This works well for this graphic novel series though. The pink is used to accentuate key or funny parts of the story, and it also reflects Babymouse's personality. The illustrations work well with the text to convey the story to the reader. Action is demonstrated appropriately for the graphic novel form. Small details, such as Babymouse's curly whiskers are carried throughout the book to help illustrate her personality. The language is simple enough that this book could possibly be used as a transitional book.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0375832297, Paperback)


Babymouse comic created exclusively for Amazon.com Meet Babymouse, a sassy young mouse who dreams of glamour, excitement, adventure, straight whiskers, being queen of the world, and of course, being invited to Felicia Furrypaws's oh-so-exclusive party. Readers will love Babymouse's vivid imagination--an empty locker becomes a black hole that sucks her into space, boring party becomes a Wild West adventure--and the clever illustrations and hilarious storyline of brother-sister team Matthew and Jennifer Holm.

Don't miss the second installment, Babymouse: Our Hero.
