A copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for my honest review 

Graphic-novel darling Babymouse makes her picture-book debut in a Christmas story . . . all about cupcakes! (Typical.)
Thank goodness Babymouse ate all of the Christmas cookies her mom made for Santa. Now she can make him something he really wants—CUPCAKES! But wait . . . what’s that rumbling in the other room? OH NO! A DRAGON!!!!! Can Sir Babymouse defeat her fiery foe and save Christmas?! Or at least save a cupcake or two? Maybe not. . . .

Jennifer and Matthew Holm bring us Babymouse’s very first full-color adventure! With signature Babymouse humor, comic book–style panels, and oodles of pink-frosted cupcakes, new readers and devoted fans alike will find plenty to love.

There's no stopping BabyMouse once she puts her mind to doing something. When BabyMouse wants to make cupcakes for Santa, she does. Filled with humor, wild imagination and mishap, fans of the original graphic novel series will love seeing BabyMouse in her new picture book debut. The illustrations are great graphic novel pictures for young kids. This is definitely a fun Christmas read. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
