Waiting on Wednesday: Lights, Cameras, Middle School! by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm
Lights, Cameras, Middle School! by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm. Babymouse: Tales from the Locker #1. 208 p. Random House Children's Books, July 4, 2017. 9780399554391.
Publisher synopsis: 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?
I learned of this last weekend on FB. I just adore the Babymouse series and have many of them in my middle school library. I am absolutely thrilled that Babymouse is going to middle school! It looks as though the books will be more illustrated novel than graphic novel but that's fine. Anything by either or both Holms is an automatic purchase for me.
