What’s scarier than a zombie mouse? Why, Felicia Furrypaws and her storm troopers, who suck all the fun out of Babymouse’s Halloween by their insistence on her following “the rules” in exchange for their gracing her post–trick-or-treat party with their dubious presence. Exchanging orange for their customary pink to accent their black-and-white panels, the Holms demonstrate again why Babymouse is one of the best characters going, her imagination taking over the pages with horror-movie scenes as she negotiates the hazards of elementary-school friendships on a particularly horrifying Halloween night. (Graphic fiction. 8-12)
