    I had to read this one to my 6 year old in the library the other day.Which was kind of embarrassing, since she requires me to do the voices when I read But it s all for the Greater Good, right Right Anyhoo, Monster Mash was a riveting addition to the Babymouse library Really.Our intrepid hero must decide if it s better to Be Yourself or to be one of the cool kids In the end, she decides she s rather be cool.Kidding She finds out that it s not much fun pretending to like stuff that you don t, and she kicks the Mean Girls to the curb.We clapped at the end Well, we made quiet clappy hands After all, we were at the library

    2.5 Stars It s a little too old for a 6 year old, at least my 6 year old Still, this is for kids, probably 8 10 depending on your kid Some of the pictures were too gory for my niece and nephew The story was good Babymouse has some mean kids who invite themselves to her Halloween party They encourage her to do bad things like TP a house and egg a house Babymouse is too scared to stand up to them at first Then she finds who she is and she does stand up to them So the story is good I am not a big fan of the art I might try another one of these when the kids are a little older.

    This book was really good The only thing I did not like about it is that it was very boring in the beginning and pulled me into the story at the end of the book And I like books that is interesting all the way to the end of the book other than that, this boom was really good So I gave it 4 STARS

    My worst Halloween costume ever A member of the hip hop group I prefer crew Kris Kross What can I say It was the early 90s and I was a fan In later years I realized that the costume you pick says a lot about your personality Pick a police officer You re trying to be cool Pick a recently popular figure in the media You re trying to be funny But that s mostly just for guys Girls have a whole other set of unwritten Halloween rules, and in Babymouse Monster Mash we see how those rules can have an impact on your social life Full of the same wit that has been an unfailing hallmark of the Babymouse series, Monster Mash is a graphic novel full of the sort of real life friend troubles that younger readers will identify with.It s October and Babymouse is thinking about Halloween When her mother gives the okay to a post trick or treating party, Babymouse can t wait She starts inviting guests, but the invitee list soon gets out of hand She even invites Felicia and her posse a.k.a the cool kids But these new friends soon start making demands that our heroine isn t eager to go along with Although she wants to go as either a warewolf or a zombie, Felicia insists Babymouse choose a prettier costume it s a rule Next, Babymouse is forced to ditch her true friends and trick or treat with Felicia and the gang When trick or treat turns into T.P ing and egging houses, Babymouse realizes that no friends are worth getting in that much trouble for.Once I started reading, it was hard to put this one down Babymouse books have a way of keeping the reader engaged all the way through Be it with daydream sequences, humorous situations, or moments of genuine feeling, the plot never plods.The illustrations, created in ink, as inventive as ever This is the first Babymouse book to forego the pink color scheme in favor of an appropriate pumpkin orange I think this was a smart move Not only does it instantly I.D this as a halloween title, but the absence of pink might also result in boys picking it up.Entertaining through and through, Monster Mash is a book you should have on hand.

    This was all about an important lesson for Babymouse about peer pressure and Halloween Felicia Furrypaws is again her antagonist the narrator notes the irony of a repeated lesson for Babymouse from book 1 , and it is a hard lesson indeed It was not all fun and games, but it was a realistic slice of childhood Any lesson that involves zombies must be a good one

    Another great Babymouse, this time in orange Whoever said orange is the new pink was seriously disturbed JK, it totally works for Halloween I found the ending to be especially satisfying.

    Enjoyed this, but not as much as the 2 previous volumes I liked the way Babymouse got up the courage to stand up for herself in the end.

    This was a very cute little graphic novel I picked up the Halloween one because I am a huge fan of Halloween, and I don t have very many holiday themed books at my disposal read library This was very interesting Instead of being a pink book, which it looks is the standard of Babymouse novels, this one is in orange Very festive.It talks about peer pressure and the wanting to conform For example, for Halloween, Babymouse wants to either be a Warewolf, a Mummy or a Zombie However, one of the popular girls greatly disagrees with this, insisting that Babymouse has to be something prettier because she s a girl I think that this idea is something that most girls have one conflict or another with I know personally I really wanted to be the cutesy costume when I was younger, rather than the scary ones The thing about this book, and from the reviews that I have read of other babymouse books, is that Babymouse is always pressured into changing her standards to that of the popular crowd, but always chooses to be good and right at the end, and understands that being with the popular crowd doesn t make you a good person The reason for this is because the popular girls start egging TPing houses and Babymouse decides that this is not the right thing to do.This is definitely a series that will lend itself to girls, but it could be good to have in a classroom where a lot of girl drama is happening.The only reason that I didn t give this a five would be because of its audience restrictions, as well as the fact that I didn t find the pictures that endearing When looking at graphic novels, I personally want pictures that aren t so cartoon y, but to each their own I think that children will like it, and that is all that really matters Overall, good read.

    Trading in the typical pink hued pages for bold splashes of orange, Babymouse is ready to celebrate Halloween She and best friend Wilson are excited to make scary costumes and have a great party after trick or treating But when mean and popular Felicia Furrypaws decides to attend Babymouse s party, she sets up all sorts of rules, effectively trampling on all of her hopes for fun Babymouse gets pressured into dressing up as something pretty and playing pranks on the neighbors Young readers will cheer when Babymouse stands up to the bully in the end and finally gets to have some real Halloween fun the way she wants For this special Halloween installment, Babymouse s daydreams are filled with appropriately spooky references to monster films, MacBeth, and sinister personalities, while maintaining their characteristic fresh and funny approach Even Babymouse s miserable night of trick or treating is a nod to Charlie Brown, although she hauls home a bag of dental products instead of rocks Of course it doesn t matter if children don t get the allusions none of this will diminish the enjoyment of another sparkling installment about our spunky heroine.
