Babymouse is a 9 year old rodent who goes to school and plays like a regular girl. She has an active fantasy life that always gets her into trouble, making her late to class and dreamy when she needs to pay attention. We see her adventures along with her friend Wilson Weasel and archenemy, the popular Felicia Furrypaws. A fun easy read graphic novel.

Babymouse is back, and she has a bit of a dilemma. She really, really, really wants a dog. Seeing as how her last pet-owning experiences haven't turned out so well, though, mom isn't having any of her pleas and begging. Sure, you could feel sorry for Babymouse, but you have to admit that the belly-up goldfish, escaped hamster, runaway turtle, disappearing ferret (need I go on with the salamander, hermit crabs, Venus Flytraps, or sea monkeys?) have mom worried about her ability to take care of a dog.
But Babymouse, being Babymouse, has big plans for this dog that she'll have, which will include proper care, feeding, walking, and grooming. Perhaps a dog show. When she finds a stray dog without a collar, it's love at first sight! Even though the dog doesn't any of the names she picks out for it and can't seem to behave for even a minute, Babymouse just knows this mouse-dog relationship is meant to be.
Or is it?
As always, this eighth adventure starring Babymouse is another winner. You can't help but love her, even when her schemes go wrong, or her hilarious daydreams take a turn for the worse. Sister/brother team Jennifer L. and Matthew Holm have got Babymouse down to a science, and I for one can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
