It's gonna be EXTREME!

EXTREME BABYMOUSE, that is!



Grab your board! The powder's fresh and Babymouse is hitting the slopes! (Uh, snowboarding, Babymouse? Is that really a good idea? You don't exactly have a good history with . . . er, being outside). Will Babymouse make it off the bunny slope? Will this winter be extreme—or just extremely lame? And does locker really have a cousin?  Find out in EXTREME Babymouse! Snowy Mountain will never be the same! 



I had to do some research for this book because I didn't know how to snowboard. I grew up skiing. It was fun ... and a little painful! (hint: you fall a LOT when you learn to snowboard).


Here's where I started.


I had to learn how to put on the board.

And I had to learn to overcome total terror. 

Because although this isn't exactly a steep hill, it is scary going down the first time! 


And the second. And the third.

I still love to ski, though.


Especially with my Babymouse skis.

Hope to see you on the slopes!  

EXTREME BABYMOUSE will be available everywhere January 8!
