Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michael Jung
In this ninth book in the popular "Babymouse" graphic novel series, readers follow Babymouse, a spunky anthropomorphic mouse, as she prepares for Halloween. Every time she tries to enjoy herself though, mean cat girl Felicia Furrypaws is there to tell Babymouse that girls have to wear pretty costumes (even though Babymouse wants to go as a zombie), that trick-or-treaters must coordinate their costumes (even though Babymouse hates dressing up as a fairy), and that Babymouse has to invite Felicia's friends to her party (even though Babymouse is pretty sure the girls are evil). But when the bullies make Babymouse vandalize houses on Halloween, Babymouse realizes they have crossed a line. Can she stand up to them and have a happy Halloween? With the creation of brother-sister team Jennifer and Matthew Holm, Babymouse provides readers with a witty heroine who loves to banter with an unseen narrator that communicates via caption boxes. Blessed with a runaway imagination, Babymouse is constantly fantasizing that the Creature from the Black Lagoon is in her locker or that some rolls of toilet paper have turned her into a mummy—daydreams that are perfectly captured by the book's squiggly line drawings. Overall, Babymouse: Monster Mash provides a fun, fast read that will leave kids hungry for the rest of the series.

Kirkus Reviews
What's scarier than a zombie mouse? Why, Felicia Furrypaws and her storm troopers, who suck all the fun out of Babymouse's Halloween by their insistence on her following "the rules" in exchange for their gracing her post-trick-or-treat party with their dubious presence. Exchanging orange for their customary pink to accent their black-and-white panels, the Holms demonstrate again why Babymouse is one of the best characters going, her imagination taking over the pages with horror-movie scenes as she negotiates the hazards of elementary-school friendships on a particularly horrifying Halloween night. (Graphic fiction. 8-12)

    It is funny. I think it will really teach other kids not to do stuff that are bad.

    It will be funny for children. And mabey for some adults too. It will also be a great story to read on Halloween.

    My daughter loves this book and is still reading it in December

    My daughter loves this book (and my 9 year old son steals it to read when she is not looking!) because of the characters and the fun illustrations!
