Review: Are you the one always with big ideas? Then this book is for you. It's called Babymouse: Queen Of The World! by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm. So if you're the one daydreaming instead of paying attention, read this book. You may find you have something in common!
In Babymouse: Queen Of The World!, the main character is Babymouse. She is a middle school girl, and she is a mouse. She really wants to be popular - queen of the world, if you will. But she can't be the queen of the world. That position is already taken by Felicia Furrypaws, a cat. Baymouse wants to be just like her. When Felicia has a sleepover party, it feels like everyone is invited but her. One day Felicia forgets her book report. She says if Babymouse gives her the report, she'll invite her to the party. When she is about to leave for the sleepover, she realizes she already has plans with her best friend, Wilson. Many things go wrong at the sleepover, and Babymouse realizes that Wilson is a true friend.
I enjoyed Babymouse: Queen Of The World!, even though the reading level is more for early elementary readers. A girl would probably enjoy it more than a boy, but it is a good book for all readers. I think this is a good book because it has a really sweet message, that true friends forgive you no matter what. It's really sweet, and I think a lot of girls can relate to it. It is also a funny book; she daydreams a lot. Jennifer L. Holm tells girls to be what they want to be through this funny, amazing story. Sure, she isn't the most popular, but she realizes she has everything she needs and life is good. If you read Babymouse: Queen Of The World! and enjoy it - Good News! There are 9 other books in this series. I recommend this book to all the dreamers and lovers of all things girly.
