Description
It's a new kind of book for Babymouse! Fans of Dork Diaries, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and James Patterson's Middle School books, this is going to be epic. . . . For Babymouse, middle school is like a monster movie. You can never be sure who's a friend and who's an enemy, and the halls are filled with mean-girl zombies. Instead of brains, the zombies hunger for stuff—the perfect wedge sandals or the right shade of sparkly lip gloss—and they expect everyone to be just like them. But Babymouse doesn't want to fit in—she wants to stand out! So she joins the film club to write and direct a sweeping cinematic epic. Will making the film of her dreams turn into a nightmare? Thanks to Babymouse, middle school gets schooled in this hilarious new series from bestselling authors Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm.

        The star of the Holm siblings’ Babymouse books enters middle school in this illustrated novel, first in the Babymouse Tales from the Locker series. Babymouse is determined to stand out at school, but she isn’t sure how. “Goldilocks had it way easy,” she laments, trying to choose among multiple activities. “All she had to do was find the right bed!” Deciding that the Film Club might be her “chance to be Famous,” Babymouse signs up, and her grandiose vision of making an epic film lands her the roles of director and screenwriter. A comedy of fiascoes ensues: the cast and crew walk out when Babymouse gets too bossy, they regroup to illegally film scenes at a medieval fair, and they wind up with an inaudible five-hour movie. Babymouse’s bravado and wild romps of imagination (captured in boisterous comics sequences) keep the spotlight directly on her—not that she’d have it any other way. The Holms humorously tackle friendship, persistence, and cooperation; readers who have aged out of the original Babymouse books will happily join her in this new chapter. Ages 8–12. Agent: Jill Grinberg, Jill Grinberg Literary Management.

        With her trademark sassy panache, Babymouse embarks on a new adventure: middle school. Babymouse has traded in her A-line heart dress for stylish new leggings and is ready for middle school. Anxious to fit in and make friends, she worries over her clothes and her cafeteria social standing. When extracurricular activities are announced, she knows her choice is important. She decides to join the film club, and when her cinematic musings bring the club together, she is named director of their upcoming project, Au Revoir, My Locker. However, being the director is harder than Babymouse expects; when things go hilariously awry, will she be able to pull the group--and ultimately herself--back together? After 20 vivaciously pink and cheerful graphic novels, the Holms have revamped their winning franchise into a hybrid of text and prose, similar to such fan favorites as Cherise Mericle Harper's Fashion Kitty. This first in a series seamlessly blends many beloved elements from the graphic novels, including large comic panels with recognizable black-and-white illustrations, with their lively prose, making for a natural evolution for its maturing audience. Budding filmmakers will be delighted to find a glossary of film terms to help them understand the narrative's jargon. A smooth transition into a fresh format that should both resonate with existing fans and entice new ones. (Graphic fantasy. 7-12)

        Gr 3-5-The Holms, the brother/sister team behind the graphic novel series "Squish" and "Babymouse," continue Babymouse's adventures, taking her into middle school. Much like Lincoln Peirce's "Big Nate" crossover chapter books, this new series will appeal to readers looking for slightly more challenging fare. Though this title contains more text than the original "Babymouse" books, there are numerous illustrations throughout, the font is large, and the difficulty of the language is comparable to that of previous books, making it ideal for fans crossing over into longer chapter book territory. Babymouse is just as energetic as ever, but now she's dealing with middle school drama and algebra. She doesn't want to fit in anymore-she wants to stand out! Babymouse finds the perfect opportunity in film club, where she is chosen to write and direct a movie inspired by her favorite epic dramas. She realizes that it's not as easy as she thought, with a diva leading actress and no budget. Ultimately, Babymouse learns that working as a team is more important than being a star. VERDICT A first purchase where the graphic novel series is popular. For fans of "Dork Diaries" and "Diary of a Wimpy Kid."-Jessica Ko, Los Angeles Public Library

        June 1, 2017
        Grades 3-5 As she starts her middle-school career (and a brand new series), Babymouse has a yen to stand out. So she signs up for Film Club, and finds herself cast as director, writer, and impresario for an epic feature she grandly titles Au Revoir, My Locker. A steep learning curve ensues, as she not only gets a quick education in the ins and outs of scripting, casting, setting up scenes, and final editing, but she's also schooled in coping with demanding actors and, when her entire crew quits because she's so bossy, putting ego aside to mend fences. Interspersed with plenty of spot drawings and sequential panels in which older versions of Babymouse and her familiar supporting cast of friends and rivals mingle with new characters of diverse animal species, her hybrid narrative sweeps along to a grand premiere before the entire student bodywhich, to her disgust, erupts not in wild applause but hysterical laughter. You can practically hear legions of delighted fans chorus along as she delivers her signature response: Typical!
