A great graphic novel for girls; even the cover is pink. I like how the narrator talks to Babymouse and makes commentary on her choices. That definitely adds another layer of humor into the story. Babymouse is kind of - not obnoxious - but maybe high maintenance, but she does end up putting a lot of work into her pet only to be disappointed in the end; she is a likeable character and I found myself sympathizing with her quite a bit.
This probably hits the upper elementary crowd and would be great for a reluctant reader who wanted more girl-centric topics. It seems that so many of the graphic novels for kids are directed at boy-type themes that it's nice to see one at the opposite end of the spectrum.
Nothing obviously objectionable.
