Lights, Camera, Middle School: Babymouse Tales From the Locker by Jennifer L. Holm, illustrated by Matthew Holm
As a fan of Babymouse, have you ever wondered how she fares as she progresses through school? For example, what happens when she reaches middle school? Well, thanks to Jennifer and Matthew Holms’ new Babymouse series, we get to find out. It’s a new culture with difficult new rules and people to navigate. But luckily, Babymouse doesn’t want to fit in–she wants to stand out!
The new series is perfect for fans of Babymouse who have grown beyond her younger adventures and want to read a bit more challenging text in a longer chapter book. It’s such fun to see Babymouse dealing with middle school drama. In this first book, she decides to join drama club and write and direct a movie based on her favorite epic dramas. Her delusions of grandeur are perfect for her new role, but she has many lessons to learn, as you can imagine. It’s part chapter book, and part graphic novel, so be prepared for something a little different. I’d say it’s the perfect read for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Enjoy!
