Introducing a new character in the Babymouse universe ...

He's a comic book-loving, twinkie-eating grade school AMOEBA trying to find his place in the world (or at least trying to make it through a school day).

He even has his own trailer! Check it out:


"If ever a new series deserved to go viral, this one does."

- Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

"An energetic, good-hearted escapade, one that young readers will enjoy."
New York Times

"A perfect mix of writing that is simple enough for early readers but still remarkably snarky, clever, and entertaining. Kids will soak up the humor, tidbits of science instruction, and adventure."
The Bulletin
