Talking Babymouse With Matthew & Jennifer Holm
By Zack Smith
One of the biggest hits in the new wave of comics for all-ages is Babymouse. The impatient, irrepressible rodent has won legions of fans as she’s conquered the beach, summer camp, a school concert, and whatever indignities life throws at her. No matter what the situation, Babymouse has a plan…or at least a fantasy…to help her get through it.
With Babymouse’s latest adventure, Monster Mash, now in stores, we spoke with her creators: Newberry Honor recipient Jennifer Holm, and her brother Matthew.
The Holms were eager to speak about their unique collaborative process, their favorite comics, and how they’d like to see comics getting into the hands of kids.
