Looking for the Babymouse Books in Spanish/Español?

UPDATE March 8, 2010:

I've learned that the US distributor of the Spanish-language versions of BABYMOUSE is Lectorum.

Lectorum: Information for Libraries and Educators

Lectorum: Information for Booksellers

... and the link to each book's page at Lectorum.com is listed below.

You may, of course, still order from any of the other sources I've listed here. But Lectorum is set up for school and library purchasing, etc. (i.e., the sorts of things your administrators will be concerned about).


The translations are done by the folks at SerreS/RBA Libros (in Spain). Here are the details on each title thus far:

BABYMOUSE, REINA DEL UNIVERSO
(BABYMOUSE: QUEEN OF THE WORLD!) - ISBN 978-8498670479

Barnes & Noble
Powell's
Scholastic's Lectorum


BABYMOUSE, ¡ERES LA MEJOR!
(BABYMOUSE: OUR HERO) - ISBN 978-8498670486

From Booklist
Like the previous three graphic novels about Babymouse, this title resonates with the travails of school life—boring classes, uncomfortable bus rides, difficult classmates—which she contrasts with her fantasy of becoming a true legendary rock star. Despite a few Spanish-isms and a few Peninsular Spanish conjugations, Spanish speakers from the Americas will find Mendo’s Spanish translation as irresistible and lively as the rowdy, pink-toned illustrations. The sparsity of truly enticing graphic novels in Spanish for middle readers makes these titles a must acquisition for every library. Grades 3-6. --Isabel Schon


BABYMOUSE, ROMPECORAZONES
(BABYMOUSE: HEARTBREAKER) - ISBN 978-8498672497
Amazon
Barnes & Noble
Powell's
Scholastic's Lectorum


The books are not all in stock and ready to ship at all of the above retailers. So be prepared to shop around. Good hunting! And good reading!
