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!

Super cute graphic novel for kids about a little mouse who has a succession of pets of "disappear" until she finds a puppy.

Babymouse is back in this 8th installment of the popular graphic novel series. In Puppy Love, Babymouse's beloved fish, Goldie #5, has died. Is it time to replace her with a different kind of pet? Mom says no to a llama, so Babymouse tries out various kinds of pets, all of which get out of their cages and disappear. When Babymouse finds a stray dog, she thinks her pet-searching days are over! But does she have the perseverance to take care of the dog? Another hit from brother-sister team Matthew Holm and Jennifer L. Holm. Hand this one your favorite dog person.
