Buy – Bubble Trouble
When Mable blew a bubble, no one knew what kind of trouble, awaited baby who was captured and blew high above the town. A jolly chase ensues with captivating artwork that expressively describes the antics of the growing crowd attempting to rescue baby.
This masterful crafted rhyming extravaganza is a far cry from the usual verse of children’s picture books. Some of the words are rather elevated and may inspire a quick dictionary probe for those readers wishing to extend their vocabulary.
Fun colourful illustrations with innovative ideas like the use of a scrabble board in both story and pictures.
Bubble Trouble is very clever and will be loved by children everywhere.
