Horn Book Review

When the library is flooded and books are destroyed (accidents happen, Babymouse), the school holds a fundraiser. Babymouse's entrepreneurial spirit (and her competitive streak) emerge as she tries to out-sell Felicia and win the special prize. This graphic novel's plucky heroine, pink-tinted daydreams, and sassy narrator continue to be rich with humor, warmth, and cupcakes. (c) Copyright 2011.
