'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except for . . . Babymouse.
The holidays are here and everyone's enjoying their favorite traditions--eating latkes, decorating for Kwanza, singing holiday songs, and most of all, being with family. Well, everyone except Babymouse. Babymouse only has one thing on her mind--PRESENTS!!! And whether she has to face down the ghosts of mean girls past or outsmart Santa himself, she'll do whatever it takes to make sure she gets the present she wants. Will Babymouse find a whiz-bang under the tree? Will she learn the true meaning of the holidays? And what do you get for a narrator, anyway? Find out in A Very Babymouse Christmas --the 15th graphic novel in the hilarious, award-winning Babymouse series!

Horn Book Review

The must-have gift this Christmas? It's a Whiz Bang, and Babymouse feels she simply cannot live without the latest electronic marvel: "It plays video games and movies, it texts, sees into the future, folds laundry, and does homework!" This graphic novel's single-minded focus reflects Babymouse's all-consuming obsession, a condition with which readers are likely to be familiar. Her holiday-classic-inspired, pink-hued daydreams allow Babymouse to switch off the mania for a while (though "the Sugarplum Whiz Bangstm" do make an appearance). The sentimental lesson delivered in the end -- "Sometimes the best gift is one you didn't even know you wanted, huh, Babymouse?" -- is obvious, but one that fits the season and bears repeating. kitty flynn (c) Copyright 2011.
