Brooks Free Library recommendation of Babymouse: The Musical

The Brooks Free Library of Harwich, Mass., posted a cute review of Babymouse: The Musical:

... All of the books in this series are charming, and this one is especially so. Anyone who is a fan of musicals will not help but be amused by the many references and spoofs of famous songs. From “Stupid Fractions” sung to the tune of “Summer Lovin’” from Grease to Annie’s Hard Knock Life changed to showcase the hard life of an understudy, the book rockets from one show to another with pizazz and flair. As always, Babymouse is her own unique self throughout it all.

I would recommend this book to fans of graphic novels (particularly girls, although I suspect that boys who can get past the bright pink cover might secretly enjoy them as well). Even if you’ve never read a graphic novel in your life, if you like musicals, then run out and get this, because it’s hilarious.
