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)
