Queen of the World! - Jennifer L. Holm, Matthew Holm
Babymouse has such a boring life. The same thing happens every day. She gets up, fusses with her curly whiskers, fights with her locker that always sticks, and wishes she could be Felicia Furrypaws' friend. Felicia is the most popular girl at school and she won't give Babymouse the time of day.When Felicia starts handing out invitations to a slumber party, Babymouse is determined to do whatever it takes to get one. She knows a sleepover at Felicia's house is going to be the most exciting thing she has ever done in her life. How could it not be? Felicia is SO cool!!!How far will Babymouse go to get an invitation? I wonder if she'll regret her decisions?I loved that Babymouse is a big reader. It really is evident in her wild imagination. Interspersed throughout the story are elaborate "dream sequences" where Babymouse pictures herself in an imaginary world doing exciting things related to what is going on in her life at the time. Babymouse is a delightful little girl.
