5PBabymouse "Heartbreaker" exhibits elements of "Radical Change, especially in terms of Interactivity. In this book, the pictures are an essential part of the storytelling - events are shown through illustration rather than described by text about half of the time, resulting in a new synergy.

I am having a difficult time enjoying these graphic novels. I can see how some children might like them, especially if they are not strong readers.

I love Babymouse. If they keep writing them, I'll keep reading them.

my favorite of the series, Babymouse loves Valentine's day but soon finds out (as we all do) that this holiday can be cruel! But never fear because as with all books in the series, Babymouse triumphs in the end--A charming and playful graphic series for young -and young at heart- girls depicting everyday problems--like how to survive sleepover camp and what happens when you don't have a valentine--in a fun and lighthearted way. GO BABYMOUSE!

This latest installment in the Babymouse series is another hit. Babymouse is super excited about the Valentine's dance until she realizes that she doesn't have a date. Can she find one before the big day? Babymouse tackles the problem with her usual amount of imagination, flair, and independence.
