Oooooh, Baby Mouse! Thanks, LW!

Doret said...

Yep, Babymouse rocks - I believe I've scared customers with my Babymouse enthsiasm

I've been eyeing Rumblewick Diary since it came in, I think I will read it now. It reminds me of a another book I loved. Fairy School Dropout.

Glad you enjoyed Hot Girl.

Lorie Ann and Doret: Two big thumbs-up for Babymouse. I think my favorite so far has been Babymouse: The Musical. :)

Doret: Thank you! Yes, check out Rumblewick's story. It's a quick read, it's good for early chapter readers, and the illustrations are cute.
