Babymouse: Puppy Love recommended in the Chicago Sun-Times

Babymouse: Puppy Love has been included with two other mouse-related graphic novels (Redwall and Mouse Guard) in Deborah Abbott's article in the Chicago Sun-Times, "Three great mice for kids."

For a contemporary setting, try the eighth volume in the best-selling Babymouse series for readers 7-10 by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm. In Babymouse: Puppy Love (Random, 98 pages, $5.99 paperback), the little heroine struggles to find and keep the perfect pet. The scratchy black-line comics, accented in shades of pink, catch the humor and determination of the unsinkable mouse. Youngsters can identify with her daydreams, problems and friendships.
