Lights, Camera, Middle School! (Babymouse Tales from the Locker)

It’s a new kind of book for Babymouse! Fans of Dork Diaries, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and James Patterson’s Middle School books, this is going to be epic. . . .

For Babymouse, middle school is like a monster movie. You can never be sure who’s a friend and who’s an enemy, and the halls are filled with mean-girl zombies. Instead of brains, the zombies hunger for stuff—the perfect wedge sandals or the right shade of sparkly lip gloss—and they expect everyone to be just like them.

But Babymouse doesn’t want to fit in—she wants to stand out! So she joins the film club to write and direct a sweeping cinematic epic. Will making the film of her dreams turn into a nightmare?

Thanks to Babymouse, middle school gets schooled in this hilarious new series from bestselling authors Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm.

      In this book, Babymouse starts middle school. She joins a filming club and is the director of the movie. Her enemy Felicia Fury Paws is the star. Almost no one wants to be in the movie. because the drama club also needs actors. The actors are stressful and hard to work with. What will happen to THIS movie?

        Baby mouse is not the coolest. She does not like middle school, and her worst enemy is well still her worst enemy. She does not know who her friends are, and who are not her friends. Will shooting a movie at school make her more popular, or will she be uncool forever?

          I did not think I was going to like this book. Babymouse? I thought it was for babies. BUT after reading it I want to read more. It's so funny! Babymouse is the coolest character in this book.

            What I would say is that I would definitely recommend this book for anyone and I would rate it a 5 star. Another thing I would say is I would read this book again and again.

              It is a combination of comics and chapter book. Perfect combo if you ask me! In this story, Babymouse joins a filmmaking club. There, however, are many struggles while making this movie. It's like the old Babymouse, except this Babymouse is a middle schooler. I totally recommend it. Read on!

                This book is amazing. Its about babymouse who wants to get famous in her school but all her attempts fail. Then she joins the film club and A LOT OF DRAMA HAPPENS. This book is really good and amusing and I love how its so relate able to reality. Its a bit like Dork Diaries but great in its own way. I really enjoyed it and hope there are more issues of babymouse.

                  I like how it's half comic, half chapter book. I can finish it in about two hours. It's funny, but I like book #two better. It is based on the Baby Mouse series, except she's in middle school, and I like it better because there are some words, more like a chapter book. My friends told me about the Baby Mouse series, but I wasn't interested. But this made me love it!

                      Lights, Camera, Middle School was an decent book. I didn't find it as entertaining as it was made out to be. Middle School for Babymouse was quite different than I was hoping, but you should read it for yourself. Maybe you'd like it better than I did.
