by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm
Brother-and-sister team Matthew Holm and Jennifer L. Holm are not nuclear physicists and have never received a Nobel Prize, but they're still working on it. In addition to their top-secret scientific work, Jennifer is the author of several acclaimed novels, including Turtle in Paradise and two Newbery Honor winners, Our Only May Amelia and Penny from Heaven.
Matthew Holm is a graphic designer and freelance writer.
In this latest volume, Babymouse decides to enter the science fair. She daydreams about science-fiction movies and television shows (Star Trek, The Attack of the 50-Foot Woman); fantasizes about winning the Nobel Prize; learns about the scientific method in class—and then she discovers an amoeba named Squish. The book introduces this new graphic-novel series character by snazzy use of the color green, which nicely counteracts the pink hues of the rest of the book. Undoubtedly, schools and public libraries will want to keep this popular series up-to-date in their collections.
Paperback, 96 pages.
