Horn Book
If Babymouse joins the mathletes, her teacher will ignore an F minus on a quiz. Babymouse's pink-tinted daydreams venture into epic fantasy territory, as she is encouraged by the Aslan-esque math coach: "Just because you're not good at something, it doesn't mean you have to be terrible at it, either." Fans of this graphic novel series will cheer Babymouse on in her battle against self-doubt.
