Meet Babymouse.  She is one girl with a wild imagination!  We first see Babymouse under her nice warm covers in the morning.  She, like a lot of us, dreads the idea of getting out of bed and going to school.  But Babymouse really has a great imagination.  As she trudges to school, she imagines herself braving the Oregon Trail with other children.  Her locker becomes a monster who eats her homework!  And then there's the dreaded dodgeball game in gym!  Will our brave heroine make it through the day?
