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.

      This story seems like a funny children's book about a mouse's strange life in middle school. Since I am in middle school, it would be cool to see a totally different character's perspective of life in middle school. I can't wait to read about the problems that would arise in such a comical story, so I am extremely excited to begin reading!

        Baby mouse Lights, Camera, Middle School is a fun and spunky graphic novel. This book takes you on an adventure of baby mouse pursuing her passion of directing movies. Too stand out of the crowd baby mouse join the film club in her middle school. Of course things don't go exactly as imagined. She has a hard to work with crew and small budget. With a plot twist and graphics on every page this book is great for readers who want an easy to read book and more imagery.

          This book was really cute. I related to the main character a lot; I think everyone in middle school and in highschool has a hard time finding their place and finding out who their friends are. I'm pretty sure everyone at some point has always wanted to be famous. This was a cute, quick read that was worth the 30 minutes it took me to read it.

                  Babymouse was a nice book to read. It's about the titular Babymouse, most popular for her graphic novels about her in elementary school, taking on middle school. She talks about how she wants to stand out in middle school but doesn't know how. Then, she joins the film club with all of her friends. She becomes the director of the movie that will debut at the middle school later on in the year. She takes on difficult tasks, like her diva actress or the insufficient setting, to make the movie of her dreams. But when she starts acting like a diva, her movie falls apart. She tries to save the movie, but she's not sure how. This book has good themes but the ending wasn't satisfying.
