Saw this blog posting, about a much-appreciated bundle of Babymouse books:
We got a present from my younger brother and his wife for Christmas. I spent the month of December trying to figure out what it was; I figured it was a game of some sort because that's the kind of people they are. Imagine my surprise when C opened the present Christmas morning, and it was five Babymouse books! We all squealed (well, C and I did), and the words used to thank dear brother and wife were: "Babymouse ROCKS!"
Because, you know, Babymouse is awesome.
I am indebted to Babymouse (and those who recommended her to me last year), for C's increasing love of reading. She was looking for something inbetween picture books and chapter books, and Babymouse hit the spot...
