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.

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-5–Several things are clear about Babymouse, as evidenced from the cover art–shes adorable and she loves pink. Luckily, as further pages reveal, she is also smart, spunky, and a tad sarcastic. In Our Hero, Babymouse must face her greatest fear–dodgeball. Felicia Furrypaws has the quickest throw in school and targets a certain mouse. Babymouse must also tackle her second fear, math. In Queen, she tries everything she can think of to get an invitation to Felicia Furrypawss slumber party. Meanwhile, she avoids her mouse-eating locker, dreams of being a queen (whose idea of luxury is a plateful of books), and solves a mystery. Finally, handing over her homework results in the coveted invitation, but the party doesnt turn out as she had hoped. In both books, the hilarious black-and-white illustrations are splashed with pink. Babymouse has a distinct voice and is a real charmer.–Sadie Mattox, DeKalb County Public Library, Decatur, GA

My daughter loved this book. It's a fun read-aloud, but not so difficult she couldn't read it to herself the next night. And the illustrations are so cute.

Baby Mouse Our Hero is a fun book about a mouse who has all the problems of a typical child. Kids that pick on her. Don't forget to take out the garbage. Is your homework done yet? For Babymouse, her trouble of the moment is three weeks of dodgeball in gym. She has never been good at it, yet she can't get out of it since it is a big part of her grade. Babymouse series is written in comic book form and keeps you smiling until the end. The book is written for young readers, whether you are reading it with them or they read it by themselves, it is sure to please its audience.

My six year old girl loves comic books. However most themes are violent or sexual. It is GREAT to have a series she loves that is designed for her age. She loves reading these before bed and practicing the words that she does not know. Reading level is perfect for her to get the major concepts with some difficult words thrown in for a challenge.

Babymouse is a spunky little creature with a standard set of problems (chores, homework, mean classmates), and a very un-standard imagination. The humor, artwork, and characters make these books a must for young girls. Go, Babymouse!

Josephine Anna Kaszuba Locke, a BookLoons reviewer, & book hugger, January 20, 2006,

Yes, the Annual Dodgeball Tournament is coming up, and she freaks out... Hm! our heroine thinks -- '...maybe a meteor will hit the school and stop the game.' Oh, no way, you 'better start practicing, Babymouse' if you intend to outshine your nemesis Felicia Furrypaws. Shown in cartoon cut-outs of the trademark pink, black, and white, creators Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm give the readers the scoop that Babymouse has a difficult time getting out of bed in the morning. She whaps the alarm clock with one of her books -- 'FWAP', but she must have a real heart inside her, as her decoration motif is pink hearts on her bedspread, wallpaper, cutout on her bedside table, and pattern on her clothing. She even imagines getting awarded 'The Pink Heart' medal for taking out the garbage without being reminded. Nah! she's still lingering in bed when she comes out of that dream, and is late catching the bus... again... and the school walking trail is 'long and dusty', and more than 2,000 miles long. (At least that is what Babymouse's imaginnation tells her, because she only lives two blocks away from the school!) Babymouse is good at a lot of things, like 'avoiding chores', swinging upside down on a tire tied to a tree branch, and 'sleeping'...but Dodgeball? 'BOP' 'POW' 'BAMM', Ow! so she avoids the game whenever she can, like running high temperatures, or 'spraining her ear' to stay home from school. Friend Wilson to the rescue... he helps to train her for the game, while Babymouse makes out her Last Will and Testament! You just have to give this girl mouse credit for trying, and imagining, especially on how to exclude Felicia! Does Babymouse ever become a hero? Read book two and find out, while watching for the next edition in May 2006. (From a BookLoons reviewer)

I think this book could be more fascinating. It took me a simple minute or so to read this. I feel like I wasted 5 dollars on this! Only 3 stars for sure!
