Horn Book Review

(Primary) The heroine of these two graphic novels for new readers is a sassy, smart mouse. Living in a Walter Mitty-like dream world, Babymouse faces the challenges of a sometimes-cruel world that await her each morning when she reluctantly emerges from under her heart-covered duvet. Each challenge brings its own accompanying daydream, rich in pink hues and dramatic overtones. When Babymouse oversleeps and misses the school bus, she has to walk to school; trudging along, she imagines herself braving the Oregon Trail, wishing to ride in the back of the wagon with the ""cool pioneer kids."" Her locker eats her homework; her teacher berates her; but the worst is to come when our heroine discovers the terrors of dodgeball (in Our Hero) and the pitfalls of trying to run with the popular crowd (in Queen of the World!). New readers will appreciate the familiar situations, humorous asides, and easy-to-digest plots. The graphic format is easy to follow, especially since Babymouse's rich inner life is painted pink while the real world is depicted in a less flashy black-and-white. Babymouse is here to stay, and fans of Fashion Kitty and Captain Underpants will now add her to their collection of well-thumbed volumes to read over and over again. [Review includes these titles: Babymouse: Our Hero! and Babymouse: Queen of the World] (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
