The Holms’ beloved, daydreaming heroine returns in this fifteenth adventure. It would be a crime not to open with “Not a creature was stirring, not even a . . . Babymouse,” and the Holms are happy to oblige in the first of Babymouse’s many Christmas-inspired reveries. Over in the real world, her life revolves around a sweet-talking mall Santa, crashing a friend’s Hanukkah celebration, and doing everything else mousely possible to make sure she gets the flashy new must-have doodad, called a Whiz Bang. A lesson in holiday spirit is learned, and fun, as always, will be had by all. Grades 3-5. --Ian Chipman
