Book description
Babymouse loves music – unfortunately, music doesn’t love her back. Babymouse struggles to learn the flute well enough to at least not be last chair for school concerts.
Babymouse is a fun read, obviously directed to elementary school girls. Her constant daydreaming will no doubt be familiar to a lot of readers, as will her honest efforts for everything to turn out right at the end.
This is a good book for talking about the difference between technical proficiency and passion. The references to classical literature (Pied Piper of Hamlin, Wizard of Oz) also make a lovely side note for a classroom, and reward for an independent reader.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0375832327, Paperback)

Babymouse is a legend, a siren, a rock star…at least in her own mind. Babymouse is a typical kid (aside from the whiskers and tail) with a big, big fantasy life to help her through the hazards of public school life: school buses, broken lockers, bullies, math class. But then there's her beloved band. She has music in her soul, if not actually in her flute. This year, though, things are going to be different. She's going to be the star of the concert. Or at least move up from last chair.

The sister-and-brother team of Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm have attained perfect pitch with Babymouse, who stars in her own series of graphic novels, including Babymouse: Queen of the World and Babymouse: Beach Babe. Illustrated in black and white for her humdrum daily existence, the scenery turns decidedly pink as Babymouse stage-dives into her imaginary world. Reluctant and avid readers alike will happily devour every book in the series, and wait eagerly for more. --Emilie Coulter

Move over Mozart! Babymouse has music in her soul...but sadly, not in her flute. Will Babymouse ever hit the right note? Will she be the star of the school concert, or is her musical career all washed up before it's even started?
