Just came across a cute review of BABYMOUSE: CUPCAKE TYCOON by a soon-to-be-3rd-grader. Here's how her mom (a librarian) tells us the young reviewer came across the book:
This summer, both my kids were able to spend one morning with me walking the exhibit floor at the ALA library conference in Washington, DC. While mom was busy scooping up books and more books, and big brother was falling in love with his new Diary of a Wimpy Kid water bottle, she kept hoping we would find "something good for her."
Enter some wonderful ladies at the Random House booth. We simply asked, "What are you excited about for an 8 year old girl?" and were handed book after book that she might like. She was in heaven!
And her review:
"Babymouse: Cupcake Tycoon" by Jennifer L. Holm & Matthew Holm
I have not read a Babymouse book before. I really liked her! She was funny. In this book she is trying to sell the most cupcakes to raise money for the school library. She wants to win the prize, but things don't work very well. I give this book TWO THUMBS UP! Did you know that there are other Babymouse books? There are 12 other books, and my mom said that we can check them all out from the library. I think "Babymouse: Beach Babe" and "Babymouse: Puppy Love" sound really good.
In the back of this book, you can read about two books coming out next summer. I think they look good because I LOVE science. One is a new Babymouse book--"Babymouse: Mad Scientist." The other is "Squish: Super Amoeba" and it is going to be green.
