Babymouse: Monster Mash


Ok, I have read it out of order because it's HALLOWEEN THEMED and I'm not quite there yet in the series (this is book 8 and I'm on book 7.)

Babymouse finds a nice scary werewolf costume and while she is reviewing the scariness of it, she runs into Felicia Furrypaws who tells her that girls can only wear nice pretty outfits whereas boys are only allowed to wear the nice scary outfits.

The next day at school Babymouse runs into her best friend Wilson the Weasel who invites her over to his house so they can finish his Frankenstein outfit together. That night at dinner Babymouse's mother says the she can have a party after trick-or-treating! Babymouse instantly starts dreaming up the best party ever with a fog machine, candy, and the best decorations ever. The next day at school Babymouse starts inviting people to the party. When Felicity Furrypaws asks if she can come, Babymouse says yes (after all she cannot NOT invite the most popular girl there!) The only condition Felicity makes is that Babymouse has to dress pretty like the rest of the girls.

Halloween night arrives and Babymouse reluctantly dresses up as a fairy - forgoing her scary Werewolf costume. Felicity and the other girls arrive and they begin trick-or-treating, but as the night comes to a close Felicity tells Babymouse that the real fun is going to begin. Felicity pulls out some TP and tells everyone that they are going to being TP-ing everyone's homes. Babymouse has to decide whether or not to do the right thing.

This was such a cute Halloween book! It was my level kinda scary - I don't do well with truly horrific scary movies/books :) Babymouse has to decide in this book whether or not to succumb to peer pressure (either by dressing like the other girls, or 'tricking' the neighbors.) It made a reference that I'm sure all you adults would know "The Creature From the Black Locker" but of course we all know if should be from the Black Lagoon.
