Fifth in the Babymouse graphic novel series, this book is sure to delight young female fans of the series. Like all the Babymouse books, it is illustrated entirely in black, white, and pink. Between indulging her complicated daydreams and avoiding the mean cat bully at school, Babymouse has to find a date for the Valentine's Day dance. When no one asks her, Babymouse eventually takes matters into her own hands and goes to the dance by herself--and finds a happy ending. While Babymouse appears sassy and confident on the outside, girls will identify with her internal struggle and questions of low self-esteem when no one asks her to the dance. A short, sweet story that is sure to entertain; best for ages 7-10.

Summary from SPL: "Will Babymouse go to the Valentine's Day dance? Will she find true love? Or will Valentine's day be a Valentine's dud?"
