Horn Book Review

In her latest graphic novel adventure, Babymouse and family head to the beach for a vacation. Babymouse dreams of surfer stardom, but her plans are foiled by crowds, nasty waves, sharks, and little brother Squeak. With her tongue in cheek, Holm conveys Babymouse's imaginative anticipation and her disappointment. The simple pink, black, and white illustrations are expressive and dynamic. (c) Copyright 2010.
