BABYMOUSE: CUPCAKE TYCOON reviewed by Good Comics for Kids

The folks over at School Library Journal's Good Comics for Kids wrote a great review of BABYMOUSE: CUPCAKE TYCOON:

Not only does Babymouse’s story have a terrific sense of humor and a gentle lesson that doesn’t make the book seem preachy or, heaven-forbid, educational, the artwork is top notch. It walks a line between making Babymouse’s world seem realistic and bringing her vivid imagination to life. My favorite example is the image showing what a library means to her. Anyone who has ever loved books has felt the same way. That’s why the Babymouse books are so popular with kids–the Holms haven’t forgotten what it is like to be a kid or the joys and problems that all kids face.

There's also a closing note about some upcoming fun ...

A teaser at the end of the book sets readers up for excitement this summer. There will be not only a new Babymouse title (#14–Mad Scientist), but also a spin-off series that eschews the familiar pink mouse for a more boy-friendly green amoeba named Squish. I, for one, can’t wait.

Both SQUISH: SUPER AMOEBA and BABYMOUSE: CUPCAKE TYCOON will hit the shelves on May 18! So close!
