Babymouse, Queen of the World!
Queen of the World! by Jennifer L. Holm
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Introducing Babymouse, whose ambitions are modest (Queen! Of the World!), but whose current goal is to score an invitation to Felicia Furrypaws' slumber party.
This clever and charming graphic novel introduces Babymouse, who is sure to join Russell Hoben's Frances and Ian Falconer's piglet, Olivia, in the hearts of readers. Babymouse loves to read and indulges in flights of imagination which remind me of James Thurber's Walter Mitty, or Calvin's various daydreams (particularly his private eye Tracer Bullet). Plus, she's a bookworm! What could be better?
I'm recommending the Babymouse books to my niece at once!
