Very funny - Babymouse is a complex, likeable character, part adventure-seeker, part brat, part dreamer. Her drifting back and forth from dreams to awkward reality creates the most laughs, but the omnipresent voice of warning is pretty funny, too, especially when Babymouse talks back to it. Hilarious depictions of fellow students, each a very different creature (think bar scene in the first Star Wars).

Geared for little learners in the form of silly fun. The little mouse-girl, obsessed with her daydreams is always dreaming of an heroic act, and being startled back into reality by some jolt. She moves fast, talks fast and is a little drama queen! With her bent whiskers, she runs hither and froth trying to get away from her little mouse brother who always wants to play. He is as obsessed with her as she is with everything but him. With no time for him, she gets into one thing after another, usua ...more
School’s out for the summer and Babymouse and her family are off to the beach. Babymouse goes surfing, gets sunburned, goes snorkeling, builds an awesome sandcastle, and rides the bumper cars on the boardwalk. She’s having lots of fun, but she wishes that she had someone cool to play with. Babymouse learns that sometimes friends come in weird places.

Probably my least favorite of the Babymouse series, this still features the best parts about Babymouse-- crazy fantasy/daydream sequences and caust

This book was very different than I thought it was going to be. When I first picked it up it seemed that it was going to be a chapter book because it was not very thin, but had some thickness to it. But when I opened it I realized that it was in what I would say a comic formation. On every page was a different picture that somewhat resembled a comic to me, with little blurbs explaining what Babymouse was doing or thinking. I really enjoyed reading this. This is because it was very entertaining a ...more

1.) Genre- Graphic Novel

2.) Summary- After everything goes wrong with her family's beach vacation, Baby Mouse learns that sometimes the person you want to hang out with the least can actually make all the difference.

3.)a.) Area of focus- Illustrations

3.)b.) Holm uses simplistic illustrations in bold colors to clearly describe the scenes in this graphic novel.

3.)c.) All of the pictures in Baby Mouse are drawn in shades of pink, white, and black. This helps to simplify the illustrations and makes
This is a great book!!! Before I read this book, I didn't really play with my sisters all lot. just try to have fun by myself. It was really boring and not FUN. But after the book, I changed and played with my sisters. It was all lot funner ( not funnier ) than before!! It changed me. Sometimes, your siblings can fill in your friend when she's/he's not here, or they're your best friends. If your not playing with your sisters right now, play with them.... You'll think it's fun. Even if he read yo ...more

The Babymouse series is wildly popular with tween girls, and I can certainly see why. For one thing, Babymouse sounds exactly like an twelve year old girl. There is a frenetic quality to the way that she talks, and bright pink, stars, hearts, and extra exclamation points are all there, often to almost eye-searing effect. However, these books are cute, engaging, and tell a story. They also address the issues that young girls everywhere face, from frizzy hair (or whiskers ;) ), bullies, pesky sibl ...more

Babymouse: Beach Babe by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm is considered a graphic novel because the story is told is pictures and graphics. This book is part of the Babymouse series, and this particular book is about Babymouse daydreaming about the beach. She dreams she is surfing the waves while she is in the shower and she dreams she is swimming as a mermouse while she is at school. After school lets out for the year, her family takes a trip to the beach. At the beach, she goes surfing (but c ...more
I love that Babymouse had so much stuff in her locker---especially the "troublesome gnomes". It was a sweet ending about family! Babymouse always makes me smile.

babymouse has so much fun at the beach that she forgets where her baby brother goes.She finds him and they enjoy the rest of the day together.

Comics generally appeal to boys more so than girls, however Babymouse is geared more for girls. A lot of the time comics have a lot going on on each page or even in each frame, but in Babymouse, it is not terribly busy and there are not a lot of words, mainly dialogue so it is a lot easier to follow than some of the other comics I have been exposed to. In this book, it is the last day of school and Babymouse is very excited for school to be over so her family can go on their vacation. It is anno ...more
this book is a comic book.its about a mouse named baby she dreams and she is a beach babe and she surfs then makes it to the end of the wave but she crashes.when she wakes up its the end of the school year.her mom said that they are goin on a vacation to the beach and of corse she goes surfing and fails again.when shes disapointed her mom asks her wats rong she said i have no one to play with and her little brother squeak is mad because he feels left out.he writes her a note and she goe ...more
I liked this book very very much! I thought that it was very cute and very readable for younger girls, possibly boys. This particular one was kind of in a comic format because on every other page, things were being described through pictures. I think it is a very interesting way to present literature to children.
Babymouse is out of school for the summer and about to take a vacation to the beach with her family! She got to the beach but was upset because she didn't have anyone to play with on her

It's Babymouse's last day of school and her family is going on vacation to the beach! After a looooooonnngggg car ride (on which her brother Squeak gets sick-eww)she finally arrives at the beach! She is having a great time surfing, snorkeling, and catching some rays! Babymouse is enjoys her time at the beach, but tells her parents she doesn't have anyone to play with. When her little brother Squeak hears this he is very hurt because all he wants to do is play with Babymouse. When Babymouse wakes ...more

Although the book is pink and many feel like it is geared to girls, this graphic novel is unisex. Everyone has experienced some type of a mishap during a family vacation. This book can connect to both male and female, no matter what the outside appearance shows. With reading this book I would want my students to understand that. Plus, this book shows the students that you should not judge a book by its cover. Also, the person who you least expect to be of im

The ending of this book gives it the extra star. I was so afraid Babymouse wouldn't get punished for her actions (well, she still didn't), but I was worried that we were supposed to laugh as her brother got repeatedly left out.

Fortunately, that wasn't the case, and the ending warms my heart. <3
Humor that can be appreciated by readers of all ages, Babymouse is a likeable character in a fun book that will be enjoyed by smart, quirky, adventurous young girls and anyone who likes to read books for smart, quirky, adventurous young girls, like me!
Who does not love Babymouse? My class loves Babymouse. Caleb loves Babymouse, I love Babymouse.

This is one of my favorites. I got to read it the other day to Caleb while he was getting a nebulizer treatment. He always picks Babymouse because they are so long... His favorite is Camp Babymouse because he thinks it reflects actual camp and he is studying all the details for this summer when he gets to go!

Anyway, what I love about this one... They go on vacation, and Babymouse is so eager to try eve

This book is a great book for younger girls to realize that these books are not just for boys. By making the book pink, black, and white I believe that this will be an attraction for these young girls. It will help them enjoy reading and help them get started young to enjoy books. To use this book in my classroom, I would divide my students into groups of boys and girls. his would be the book that I would girl the group of girls. I would have them
Another adventure starring Babymouse, with her little brother Squeak playing an adorable sidekick who’s initially kicked to the curb (err… sand?) while Babymouse is determined to look cool and have fun on her own.

I like the way the story started and ended. It is about a mouse that goes to the beach for summer. I like baby mouse beach babe because it was funny and kind of weird. I think it's a nice book and i think the writer likes making these books for kids.
It was surprising to know that all the copies of Babymouse were taken in the 3 libraries that were within the area I lived. Luckily, I was able to get this graphic novel Babymouse: Beach Babe. First of all, the title made me giggle. I thought it was cute. I then read the inside note from the author and became very interested in wanting to know what would happen to Babymouse Beach Babe. Beach Babe was in for a great summer experience. This graphic novel was very humorous. It was an easy read. I t ...more
I thought this book was a very good book. The part in this book I liked the best was when Babymouse was in the car and she kept on asking "Are we there yet".

This is the third book in the Babymouse series by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm. The plot centers on Babymouse trying to learn to surf and dealing with her pesky younger brother.

Our youngest really likes these books. They are quick reads and she's read two of these books in the last couple of days. I'm sure that we'll quickly read through this series.

Beach Babe by Jennifer Holm and Matthew Holm is a graphic novel and the third book in the Babymouse series. This story is about a mouse that goes to the beach for summer vacation but does not want to spend time with her brother. She imagines all sorts of adventures as she plays at the beach but ends up realizing that she is not having as much fun without her brother. This story is unique in that the pictures are mainly in black and white with a little bit of pink to highlight Babymouse and her i ...more
The series keeps getting better and better! In installment #3, Babymouse weathers the last day of school and heads out to the beach for vacation. In this story, Babymouse learns the meaning of family and friendship. Very tender moments to be had. My favorite part? When Babymouse gets impatient in the car on the way to the beach. She has a fantasy that she's a professor in Africa and Squeak, her brother, is Tarzan. Squeak grabs her whiskers and says "Why whiskers messy?" First, sooo funny!! Secon ...more
