In the latest edition to this popular and ever-expanding series, Babymouse cannot wait for Christmas so she can receive a Whizbang. Babymouse writes a letter to Santa, sits on his lap several times, and wishes with all her might for a Whizbang. The Whizbang plays videogames, texts, solves mathematical problems, sees into the future, folds laundry, and does homework. At school, Babymouse waits for her Secret Santa to bring the Whizbang. She goes all out to win the Holiday Locker Decorating Contest. After school, Babymouse attends "The Nutcracker" ballet with a friend. Instead of getting a Whizbang, Babymouse receives whisker conditioner from her Secret Santa. And she does not get a Whizbang for Hanukkah, either. But Babymouse has a vivid dream that is reminiscent of the famous classic, A Christmas Carol. Babymouse realizes Christmas is not about presents; it is about family, friendship, and love. On Christmas morning, Babymouse finally receives a Whizbang from Santa. Babymouse learns a valuable lesson about the love and joy of the holiday season. In this fun and humorous book, young readers will follow Babymouse through an exciting adventure. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.

Gr 1–4—Babymouse decorates her locker for Christmas, imagines herself in scenarios ranging from "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" (in which a mouse is indeed stirring) to "A Christmas Carol" (in which Babymouse meets the scary Ghost of Mean Girls Past), and obsesses over getting a Whiz Bang, a mobile device that does everything but straighten whiskers. Somehow, she makes it to Christmas in one piece, when she discovers that unexpected presents can be the best ones. Both fans and readers new to the series will linger to read Babymouse's pink-saturated Yuletide adventures cover to cover.—Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library
