School Library Journal ranks Babymouse: Puppy Love among top graphic novels for kids

School Library Journal included Babymouse: Puppy Love among its 25 picks of graphic novels for younger readers:

... graphic novels are now addressing important personal and social issues like the power of imagination, being true to one’s self, the benefits of teamwork, and how to cope with divorce and bullying. Teachers and librarians are also beginning to realize that these books are perfect for young readers who are making the transition from picture books to text-only titles. And with graphic novels’ hypnotic power to pull kids into a story, they’re also perfect for promoting recreational or free voluntary reading—one of the most effective ways to increase literacy and create lifelong readers.
