Rating: 1- 5 (5 is excellent or a Starred review) 4
Genre: Humorous stories
What did you like about the book? Babymouse has graduated from graphic novels to chapter books in this kick off to a brand new fiction series. Irrepressible as ever, Babymouse has entered middle school where everything has changed. “In elementary school, all I wanted to do was fit in. But now that I was in middle school, I wanted to stand out.” Babymouse joins the film club and becomes the director of an epic student film. Filled with the familiar comic panels that Babymouse graphic novel fans will recognize, this story is laugh out loud fun.
Anything you didn’t like about it? No
To whom would you recommend this book? Fans of the Babymouse graphic novel series will welcome this chance to grow into middle school. This title is wonderful way to transition from graphic novels to chapter books. Hand it to readers who enjoy fiction mixed with comics such as Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney and Dork Diaries by Rachel Renee Russell.
Who should buy this book? Public Libraries and elementary school libraries
Where would you shelve it? Fiction
Should we (librarians/readers) put this at the top of our “to read” piles? Yes, if you love Babymouse!
