1. This book would fall under the category of a junior book, graphic novel.
2. Babymouse wants desperately to be part of the popular crowd. When the most popular girl in school is throwing a slumber party, Babymouse wants to be included. She gives up her book report to score the invite, but is the party what she dreams it will be?
3. critique
a. The strongest part of this book is its limited words and illustrations.
b. Graphic novels seem to usually be geared towards boys, so it is great that this series is constructed with girls as the target audience. The pictures are girly and the book is almost busting with bright pink to add to the comic. The authors chose to include just enough words to convey their message, but not so much that would bog down struggling readers. The pictures do show the reader the important things.
c. What girl doesn’t like pink? Babymouse seems to love pink and hearts – with the addition of every girl’s dream – a desire to be queen of the world! By coloring the drawings with just pink and black, the intended audience is drawn into the girly world of Babymouse.
4. a curriculum connection
This book is another must-have for my future classroom library. It is great for struggling readers and a great story about popularity. Some things are not what they seem to be!
