Babymouse's character

I came across a post by Joy Simpson of the Devon (UK??) Primary Strategy Literacy Team, "Using Graphica in Literacy."

I loved this:

... I decided to do a bit of reading of graphica. I chose BabyMouse - Puppy Love by Jennifer Holm and Matthew Holm as I was interested in those that were written with girls in mind, and Clan Apis by Jay Hosler....

BabyMouse is written in black and white with shades of pink used throughout.... A character study of BabyMouse would be interesting. Self-centred is my opinion but the clues to this are really quite subtle. I am hooked!

Yes, it's true. When you think carefully about her, Babymouse can come across as a bit self-centered.


(But then, what kid doesn't?)
