The holidays are here and everyone's enjoying their favorite traditions--well, everyone except Babymouse, who has only one thing on her mind: presents! And whether she has to face down the ghosts of mean girls past or outsmart Santa himself, she'll do whatever it takes to make sure she gets the present she wants.
About the Author
Brother-and-sister team MATTHEW HOLM and JENNIFER L. HOLM have been extremely good this year. If you're reading, Santa, Jennifer would love to find a surfboard under her tree and Matthew is still waiting for the Star Wars AT-AT walker he asked for when he was 10. When they're not busy decking halls, Jennifer is the "New York Times" bestselling author of several highly acclaimed novels, including three Newbery Honor-winners, "Our Only May Amelia," "Penny from Heaven," and "Turtle in Paradise. " Matthew Holm is a graphic designer and freelance writer. They are also the creators of the Squish series (which we think Rudolph would really enjoy).
Gr 1-4-Babymouse decorates her locker for Christmas, imagines herself in scenarios ranging from "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" (in which a mouse is indeed stirring) to "A Christmas Carol" (in which Babymouse meets the scary Ghost of Mean Girls Past), and obsesses over getting a Whiz Bang, a mobile device that does everything but straighten whiskers. Somehow, she makes it to Christmas in one piece, when she discovers that unexpected presents can be the best ones. Both fans and readers new to the series will linger to read Babymouse's pink-saturated Yuletide adventures cover to cover.-Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library (c) Copyright 2011.
