Dust off your dancing shoes. Babymouse and the gang are taking center stage in the feel-good book of the season! Will Babymouse get the lead in the school musical or will Felicia Furrypaws steal the show? Find out in Babymouse: The Musical ! Filled with highsteps and high jinks and starring the critically acclaimed, award-winning Babymouse as herself, this showstopper will have you tapping your toes and singing along!

I have to say I love Babymouse. There’s always a ton of references to either popular books or, in this case, musicals. Part of her day dreams involve “The Phantom of the Locker”, Grease, and Annie. So adorable. I can see why these books keep flying off the shelf. They’re funny, entertaining reads that kids can really relate to. Babymouse is the type of girl that always has bent whiskers and always ends up in a mess of some sort. Her catch phrase “Typical”.

I like how the narrator of the story chimes in at times and has a conversation with Babymouse. These graphic novels are simple fantastic. This sibling team has created some of the best graphic novels I’ve read. I love the black, white, and pink theme in each book (or orange for the Halloween one!). I think Babymouse is a character anyone can relate to and that is why it appeals to kids so much!

Definitely a must-read.
