Review
  • Gr. 4-6. This energetic comic by a brother-sister team (Jennifer's Our Only May Amelia was a Newbery Honor Book) introduces Babymouse, a young rodent possessed of an admirably gender-bending array of interests and plagued by typical school traumas. The main confrontation takes place on the harrowing battlefield known as the dodgeball court, the site of an earlier trauma for Babymouse. At the end of a furious match, arrogant class idol Felicia Furrypaws (a cat, of course) gets a satisfying comeuppance and Babymouse faces her fears. Free-wheeling pink-toned illustrations admirably catch all the action. -- Jesse Karp (Reviewed 12-01-2005) (Booklist, vol 102, number 7, p48)
  • (The following is a combined review for Babymouse: Our Hero and Babymouse: Queen of the World!) Gr 2-5 –Several things are clear about Babymouse, as evidenced from the cover art–she’s adorable and she loves pink. Luckily, as further pages reveal, she is also smart, spunky, and a tad sarcastic. In Our Hero , Babymouse must face her greatest fear–dodgeball. Felicia Furrypaws has the quickest throw in school and targets a certain mouse. Babymouse must also tackle her second fear, math. In Queen , she tries everything she can think of to get an invitation to Felicia Furrypaws’s slumber party. Meanwhile, she avoids her mouse-eating locker, dreams of being a queen (whose idea of luxury is a plateful of books), and solves a mystery. Finally, handing over her homework results in the coveted invitation, but the party doesn’t turn out as she had hoped. In both books, the hilarious black-and-white illustrations are splashed with pink. Babymouse has a distinct voice and is a real charmer.–Sadie Mattox, DeKalb County Public Library, Decatur, GA --Sadie Mattox (Reviewed March 1, 2006) (School Library Journal, vol 52, issue 3, p251)
