Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3–Babymouse's family spends summer vacation at the beach. During boring or difficult times, the young mouse uses her imagination to take her to far more interesting and exciting places. Her younger brother wants to play with her, but, like most big sisters, Babymouse wants nothing to do with him. When he runs away, she realizes how important he is to her, and how much fun they can have. The story moves quickly, and readers are sure to notice that whenever Babymouse has trouble with a character, it is illustrated as a cat. The black-and-white cartoons are highlighted with splashes of pink that become darker when the action intensifies. This book will be popular with young graphic novel fans as well as devotees of the genre in general, especially reluctant readers.–Ronnie Gordon, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

From Booklist

Gr. 4-6. If Ian Falconer's pig Olivia grew a few years and turned into a mouse, she would be Babymouse. In this third hyperkinetic, pink-washed adventure, as frolicsome and breathlessly paced as the previous two, the squiggly whiskered heroine heads for a family summer on the beach. Packed with the energy of 100 kids, she launches a catastrophic surfing career and tries to keep little brother Squeak out of her fur. Adventurous and refusing to stick to gender-stereotyped pursuits, Babymouse is on the lookout for a partner to share her flights of fancy. A slight penchant for selfishness notwithstanding, before the summer is through, she realizes that the perfect playmate has been sitting right under her pink nose all along. Both story and art take full advantage of the lively possibilities of Babymouse turned loose from school (where teachers educate via the "blah blah blah" method) to explore the larger world with an imagination run wild.

Format: Paperback
Babymouse: Beach Babe sat on my coffee table the day after it arrived, looking very pink, and calling out, in a high-pitched, squeaky sort of voice "read me." Eventually, just before bedtime, I gave in. And I have to say, after missing the first two books in the series, that I am now in love with Babymouse.

For those of you unfamiliar with the series, the Babymouse books are graphic novels, with engaging pink and black pictures, designed for the 8 to 12 set. They feature an indomitable heroine, with a rich fantasy life, and loving, if largely invisible, parents. This installment begins with Babymouse dreaming of being a surfing champion, only to wake to discover that (oh great joy!) it's the last day of school. After making it through the day, Babymouse learns (oh greater joy!) that her family will be vacationing at the beach. What follows is a mixture of real-life beachside trials and tribulations (sand-castles, surfing, sunburn, and boardwalks) and fantastical adventures (mermaids and genies in magic bottles).

But the real story is Babymouse's relationship with her much younger brother, Squeak. Anyone who has ever had a younger sibling, or been a younger sibling, will be able to relate to the images of Squeak, ready with his kite, eager for his adored older sister to play with him. And, sadly, we can also relate to Squeak's desolation when Babymouse is too busy, running off on her adventures. There's a scene in which Squeak's heart literally breaks, upon rejection from Babymouse. Clearly, the brother-and-sister creators of this book have some real-life experience in matters of older and younger siblings. You'll have to read the book yourself to see how it turns out.

Can't say enough good about BabyMouse books. My reluctant 8 yo reader is really exerting herself to read this series of books. She is sounding out the few more challenging words so she can read the books by herself. There is not that much in the way of substance or storyline, but there is plenty of opportunity to practice reading with expression and to see how it impacts the story. This has really helped and is a skill she is using in other reading situations. The books include a lot of imaginatiions and daydreams of Babymouse woven into the story so they are fun. There is some opportunity for discussion of relationships, choices made by characters and other meaningful discussions. It is not a chapter book, but I suppose would be called a graphic novel.

My seven year old daughter really likes this series, easy to follow and simple sentances. These provide some reading confidence and likeable storylines for my emerging reader. I personally don't love the comic book format of the writing and the sound effects (Aghhhhh!, Ughhhhh!, etc.) but my daughter appreciates.

My girls love Diary of a Wimpy Kid, but it was too hard for many of them. When searching, this book was considered similar to Diary of Wimpy Kid and it's at a second grade level. My girls love this series and are asking for more!

I got this book for free at the library and wish I never picked it up. The "Babymouse, Babymouse" repetition is very annoying. Unfortunately, however, my four-year-old loves this book and has me read it to her over and over and over. She's learning to read and likely has this book memorized, so if I omit even one "Babymouse," she will correct me. So, five stars for the kids and, well, very few stars for me. I really want to "lose" this book. But, it's not all about me, is it? My daughter loves this book. I just won't tell her it's a series.

My daughter checked one of babymouses books out at the library and could not put it down! I looked it up on the internet and found them on amazon. She loves them. This is good because she is reading during the summer! We bought the first four and will buy the rest at a later date.
