It’s a new kind of book for Babymouse! Fans of Dork Diaries, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and James Patterson’s Middle School books, this is going to be epic. . . .
For Babymouse, middle school is like a monster movie. You can never be sure who’s a friend and who’s an enemy, and the halls are filled with mean-girl zombies. Instead of brains, the zombies hunger for stuff—the perfect wedge sandals or the right shade of sparkly lip gloss—and they expect everyone to be just like them.
But Babymouse doesn’t want to fit in—she wants to stand out! So she joins the film club to write and direct a sweeping cinematic epic. Will making the film of her dreams turn into a nightmare?
Thanks to Babymouse, middle school gets schooled in this hilarious new series from bestselling authors Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm.

Lights, Camera, Middle School is the first book in the BabyMouse : Tales From The Locker series! It's the start of Middle School for BabyMouse and she wants to make a big impression on everyone instead of just fitting in. She joins the film club and is set on making the best movie ever but with everything not going as planned, her dream is turning into a nightmare. It takes BabyMouse courage to turn things around at the last minute for everything to fall into place!! Why is it that I have never heard of BabyMouse before, I even worked in a School Library and never heard of her. This book and every series that has BabyMouse in it, needs to be nationwide for kids to learn lessons and to just have fun with it!! For me, the ending ended too sudden for my tastes but you can see where the Authors were going with it so it makes perfect sense in the end! Overall, this was a good read that has a chapter book / comic feel to it that brings the story to life in the most fun way that I ever seen a book done before! Thank You to Jennifer L. Holm & Matthew Holm for starting this series that turned me into a BabyMouse fan!! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from the Publisher!

From the authors of the Babymouse series of books for young readers comes the first in a new series of books for middle grade readers. Babymouse is now entering middle school and she’s having a little difficulty adjusting. The book starts off comparing middle school to a monster movie with brain eating teachers, packs of zombies chasing the latest fad, and homework eating lockers. It shows that Babymouse is a very imaginative young girl and just how frightening middle school can be. It’s Activities Week and everyone has to decide which after school club or sport they want to sign up for. Babymouse chooses Film Club. She soon finds out that things don’t always go to plan and she learns a few things about team work and friendship. With lots of cute illustrations throughout, this book is sort of a combination graphic novel and chapter book. It has a diverse cast of characters and teaches some good life lessons. The reader will also learn the basics of and some of the terminology about film making. Many middle graders are sure to enjoy the humor and maybe can identify a little with Babymouse as she and they learn to navigate the strange new world of middle school.
