Jennifer and Matthew Holm, the sister and brother who created the Eisner Award winning Babymouse graphic novels, are bringing their character back for a new series,  and ICv2 has an exclusive preview of the first book, The BIG Adventures of Babymouse: Once Upon a Messy Whisker.

The Holms’ creation debuted in 2005 in Babymouse: Queen of the World, and the series went on for 20 volumes, becoming an early best-seller in the children’s graphic novel category, with over 1.8 million copies sold. Their Babymouse for President won the 2013 Eisner Award for Best Publication for Early Readers. The Holms have also collaborated on the middle-grade graphic novel Sunny Side Up and its three sequels, all published by Graphix (see “Review: ‘Sunny Side Up’ GN”).

The BIG Adventures of Babymouse is a new series that will be in full color, unlike the previous books, and will have a larger trim size and about twice as many pages. The BIG Adventures of Babymouse: Once Upon a Messy Whisker will be released on September 27, 2022, as a 224-page hardcover with an MSRP of $20.99 and a paperback with an MSRP of $12.99.
