Publisher Comments:

It's the same thing every day for Babymouse. Where is the glamour? The excitement? The adventure? Nothing ever changes, until...Babymouse hears about Felicia Furrypaws's exclusive slumber party. Will Babymouse get invited? Will her best friend, Wilson, forgive her if she misses their monster movie marathon? Find out in Babymouse: Queen of the World, a graphic novel with attitude!

Review:

"Jennifer Holm (Our Only May Amelia) and her brother Matthew Holm, a graphic designer, make an incursion on Captain Underpants territory with these comic books about a girl mouse. Both tales share eye-grabbing black-and-pink graphics, and a perceptible Spiegelman influence simmers in the energetic ink illustrations of the dot-eyed heroine. Queen of the World! introduces Babymouse and her nemesis, a popular cat named Felicia Furrypaws. Babymouse desperately wants an invitation to Felicia's slumber party (which she feels could confer 'queen' status), although her best friend Wilson the Weasel expects her to watch monster movies with him that night. Fantasy sequences testify to Babymouse's reading habit and active imagination: in one reverie, she's Babymouserella, transformed into a princess by 'fairy godweasel' Wilson, but undone by Felicia on the way to the ball ('In 'Cinderella,' the mouse pulls the carriage. Duh!'). A sequel, Our Hero, centers on a gym class where unathletic Babymouse faces dodgeball whiz Felicia. Before the competition, Babymouse daydreams of boot camp, stomps on her antagonist as 'Babymousezilla' and indulges in a Peter Pan sequence where a combined Felicia-Hook makes her walk the plank into the jaws of a crocodile (who doubles as the gym teacher). The Holms make humorous allusions to novels and movies, and interject sympathetic remarks from an offstage narrator. This personable, self-conscious mouse, with her penchant for pink hearts, resembles Kevin Henkes's Lilly, with some extra years of grade-school experience. Ages 7-10." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"New readers will appreciate the familiar situations, humorous asides, and easy-to-digest plots; the graphic format is easy to follow." Hornbook Guide to Children

Review:

"Both story and art take full advantage of the lively possibilities of Babymouse turned loose from school...to explore the larger world with an imagination run wild." Booklist

Review:

"[A] quick, funny tale that ends on a warm note, with Babymouse discovering that wipeouts are more fun when shared with her biggest little fan." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Babymouse has a distinct voice and is a real charmer." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Young witch Salem Hyde is stubborn, impulsive, and loves flying. Her cat companion, Whammy, is nervous, careful, and loves staying on the ground. Somehow, though, theyandrsquo;re best friends. In this second book in the series, Salem is invited to a birthday party, and she wants to make sure everything goes perfectly. But from the invitations to the presents, party games, and spells gone awry, nothing happens exactly the way it should, and sheandrsquo;ll need Whammyandrsquo;s help to sort it all out.

Praise for The Misadventures of Salem Hyde: Book Two

andquot;Cammusoandrsquo;s lively art conveys wonderful expressions with just a few strokes, and young readers will enjoy the humor of Salemandrsquo;s predicaments. Salem manages to give Edgar a memorable birthday party, and readers a very fun book.andquot;

--Booklist

andquot;With lots of laughs and lots of heart, this sophomore offering doesnandrsquo;t disappoint.andquot;
