Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In the twelfth title in the popular Babymouse series, the little rodent dreams of entering and winning the biggest soapbox race of the year. She has to make her own vehicle, but all she makes is a mess until her friend Wilson helps her. More than just a situation, the story takes a surprising turn when, at the last moment, Wilson needs her help, and it’s Babymouse who comes to the rescue. As usual, the pink-accented, black-and-white drawings are full of action, humor, and feeling, and kids will enjoy the wry classroom and schoolyard backdrops as much as Babymouse’s big fantasies. Grades 4-6. --Hazel Rochman

Format: Paperback
In this, her twelfth adventure, the cupcake-obsessed rodent discovers a new sport: soapbox derby! But Babymouse lacks the focus to build a racecar, and so calls on her best friend, Wilson, to "help." But being Babymouse's helper is a demanding job, and Wilson might not have time to fix his own ride. When Chuck E. Cheetah, three-time derby winner, scoffs at Wilson's skill, what will Babymouse do?

Is it possible to dislike Babymouse? She is such a winning character that it is hard to imagine anybody having bad things to say about her. Like all Babymouse volumes, the joy in this book comes from Babymouse's uniquely scattered perspective; while it might not be good for Babymouse when she drifts off into fantasyland, it's great for the reader. Holm and Holm put Babymouse in a chariot race, in a hot-air balloon, even in the climax of a movie set long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away. These sequences are an opportunity for some of the most joyous and playful art in comics, all rendered in trademark shades of pink, black, and white.

The fun and energy in these books are second to none, and young readers (and a few older ones) will be happy to see Babymouse back on the track.

This is number 12 in the Babymouse series and the story is as enjoyable as any of them. I've been buying Babymouse books for a young pre-teen with a slight reading disability and the books have gotten her to really take an interest in reading. That alone is enough to make them worth five stars.

This particular book has cupcake-loving Babymouse getting involved with a soap-box racer, daydreams about a chariot race, hot air balloons, and a riff on Star Wars and a lesson about friendship. The story might seem a little scattered at times, but you're seeing the world through Babymouse's eyes and it's delightful.

The lastest Babymouse adventure, Babymouse #12: Burns Rubber, has my students fighting over who gets to read it next! I teach fifth grade and I can't keep this series on my classroom bookshelf! I've tried sneaking in other graphic novels, but all the kids, boys and girls, prefer this series! Jennifer Holm is a huge hit! The number one question: "When does the next one come out?"

Format: Paperback
This book is a Cybils '10 nominee and as a panelist for Graphic Novels this is required reading for me.

Babymouse's friend can fix anything and she has always brought her broken stuff to him and he fixes it for her. While there she finds him working on his dream project, a soap box race car. This is the first year he has been old enough to enter and he encourages BM to enter too. Of course, she ends up bringing her problems to him and he ends up building the car for her to the detriment of his own car. Babymouse learns about abusing a friendship. Can't say this one really did anything for me at all. The imagination scenes are always the best in these books but aliens being killed by fractions, an "around the world in 80 days" take-off and the inevitable Star Wars scenario just didn't get any chuckles out of me. Of course the kids, and we're really talking girls here, who love the series are going to want to read this as much as any other.
