Gotta love Babymouse

Our Hero (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition) (Babymouse (Prebound)) - Matt, Jennifer Holm, Matthew Holm



In Babymouse: Our Hero, Babymouse tries to overcome her fear of dodgeball. During the story, Babymouse imagines herself as a hero who undergoes many trials, such as walking miles to school or becoming Babymouse-zilla, a monster who cannot be defeated by dodgeballs. The illustrations are cute and use black, white and pink colors.


The Babymouse series is about a mouse with messy whiskers and big dreams. She faces problems with the help of her imagination, her friends, and a bit of sass. The series has won awards including a 2006 ALA Notable Children’s Books award, and a 2013 Eisner award for Babymouse for President. There are 20 books in the Babymouse series.


Babymouse is cute and she is a character that kids will relate to. There is also a middle school version of Babymouse for older kids.
