The best! My favorite of the Babymouse collection so far! Bravo, Brava!
The new boy at school is super cute. When he singles out Babymouse for some attention, it gives her the guts to try out for the school musical. But (evil) Felicia Furrypaws gets the lead! Will Babymouse get her chance to shine?
Oh. My. Goodness. References to SO many musicals in this one! Annie, Phantom of the Opera, Grease (complete with parody of "Summer Lovin'"). But the part that really got me was the little American Idol scene.
Comic Genius! And I feel very lucky because Jennifer Holm is coming to visit Champaign again! She'll be at the library at 7 p.m. on May 15th.
