Curtain Call: 12/07/22
Curtain Call by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm (Illustrator) (2020) is the fourth book in the Babymouse: Tales from the Locker series. Babymouse wants to be part of the upcoming middle school play. Unfortunately her usual distraction and impatience results in having a one line role.
This volume is a good companion piece to Friends Forever by Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham (Illustrations) (2021). Both have themes of anxiety and bullying set against a school play. I would also argue that Babymouse reads as possibly having undiagnosed ADHD.
Of all the books in this middle grade series, Curtain Call reminds me most of the previous graphic novel series. It's been a while since Babymouse has been this distracted and this hyper.
The fifth book is Whisker Wizard (2021).
