Gr 3-6– Babymouse feels invisible. Even when she does get attention from her classmates and teachers, it’s usually because she’s embarrassed herself. She tries out for the school play in an effort to get noticed. But reality doesn’t live up to her daydreams of fame and fortune, and after a disastrous audition, she’s assigned to be a clown with only one line. In addition, her creativity is just not appreciated on set. Despite numerous mishaps involving ripped costumes, inappropriate attire for set building, and allergic reactions to makeup, Babymouse tries to help make the play work. But can she save the day when things go wrong in the middle of the performance? In numerous illustrations, Babymouse’s amusing misadventures shine through, inspiring sympathetic laughter.
VERDICT A must for libraries where the “Babymouse” series is popular.
