Queen of the World! (Babymouse #1) by Jennifer L. Holm, 96 pages, read by Angie, on 10/14/2013

Babymouse has to deal with all kinds of things like curly whiskers and homework and a stuck locker. She dreams of being Queen Babymouse with a tiara and everything. She also wants to be friends with Felicia Furrypaws, the most popular girl in school. She does everything she can think of to get invited to Felicia’s slumber party. But once she is there she realizes how boring these girls are and goes back to her best friend Wilson. I think this graphic book has a lot of appeal to younger girls. The story is very approachable and has a great message. I love the black, white and pink drawings. I also think the Babymouse asides where she imagines greatness for herself are awesome and funny.
