Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The Quail Club by Carolyn Marsden continues the story begun in The Gold-Threaded Dress (which, according to PW's starred review, "hits the issues of this age group squarely and truthfully"), as Oy must work to keep her place in the Quail Clubso Liliandra won't kick her out. Ages 7-10. (May) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature - Alexandria LaFaye
In this installment of the Babymouse adventures, the young mouse is headed for the beach. School is out and she's ready to become a "beach babe" by learning how to surf on a family vacation. Meanwhile, her little brother struggles to win Babymouse's affections. Told with humor, energy-filled illustrations, and a fun weaving of animal fantasy and psychological realism, this cute, quick read packs a lot into its graphic novel format. We have Babymouse and her misadventures on the beach fleshed out by her active inner life filled with daring adventures and humorous recollections. This fun-filled story is coupled with the challenges of an average sibling relationship. Her younger brother gets carsick on the trip to the beach, and later eats too much on a trip to the carnival to add some gross, true-to-life humor. He's also insistent on playing with his sister, who doesn't have the time for him until she nearly loses him and realizes he could make her beach adventures even better. With heart, humor, and a good dose of vomit, this book has it all. It's great fun and a quick read; kids will no doubt enjoy every frame.
Kirkus Reviews
The little mouse with the big personality skips through a third set of mini trials and triumphs, presented in two-color graphic novel-style panels. Having daydreamed her way through the last day of school ("Good-bye, dumb fractions!") and even cleaned out her locker, Babymouse bounds eagerly into the car for a getaway to the beach. But what with crowds, surfboard wipeouts, sunburn, the odd shark and trying to keep adoring little sibling Squeak at arm's length (which isn't quite far enough to avoid the fallout, so to speak, of occasional bouts of motion sickness), the vacation starts to look like a big fizzle: "Typical!" to quote Babymouse's watchword. Pairing short bits of text in a "hand-lettered" font to small but clear scenes drawn with dark lines and pink highlights, the authors tell 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. Emergent readers will cheer "Babymouse!" right along with Squeak. (Graphic novel. 6-8)

    Girls love them!

    I am a k-12 Librarian and my female students love these books. They are popular from about ages 8-12. 3rd through 6th grade. These are a good way to get a child who does not really like to read hooked on reading several books.
