Babymouse may be small in stature but her imagination is enormous! Check out Kidzworld’s review of her latest adventure in Babymouse Dragonslayer!

Math Malaise

The cover of Dragonslayer may depict Babymouse in full-on Medieval gear, but like most of her past adventures, Babymouse’s latest battle actually takes place in the real world. It turns out the dragon she needs to slay is a personal one—her deep-seated fear of math.

Babymouse loves reading and words have always come easy to her, but when she fails an imortant math test, her teacher forces Babymouse to join the Mathletes. Babymouse must conquer her fear of numbers so she can compete in the Math Olympics and help her team—the Fighting Fractions—bring home the coveted Golden Slide Rule.

All Over Allusions

Babymouse livens up her day-to-day school life by imagining herself inside her favorite books. She’s transported to Middle Earth and Narnia via her love of the Lord of the Rings and The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe and her imaginative adventures help her solve some real life problems. But is Babymouse the one the prophecy spoke of—the one with a true heart who will lead the Fighting Fractions to glory and restore the Golden Slide Rule to its rightful home? It will take a lot of hard work, but Babymouse must try her darndest in the Math Olympics—but when she’s chosen for the final sudden death question will she let down her team or will her fanciful daydreams help her once again? You’ll have to pick up Babymouse Dragonslayer to find out!


The Bottom Line

If you pick up this book expecting a gothic tale of knights and dragons, you’ll be disappointed, but fans of the Babymouse series are rewarded with another imaginative jaunt through the mind of their favorite cupcake-consuming heroine.

    You can not mistake ancient technology. Our ancestors have some very futuristic stuff  back then... But , when it comes to budgets... I dunno. Maybe it's fake because you can't bring a camera to the moon, who knows?
