Synopsis

Big Bad Bubble by Adam Rubin

An ordinary bubble may seem pretty harmless to you. To the monsters of La La Land, however, a fragile, shimmering bubble is an object of terror, and when the frightening habits of bubbles are detailed by a fear-mongering monster, Yerbert, Froofle and Wumpus run away and cry. But with encouragement from the narrator and from readers the three learn to confront their fears and triumph over the bubbles! Rubin and Salmieri are two of the weirdest, funniest guys working in kids' lit today. (Publishers Weekly).

Reviews

A rollicking (but rational) examination of fear vs. reality. Publishers Weekly Barmy and brilliant. A strong dose of pure, simple and silly, fantastically good. Books for Keeps This great book is a perfect starting point for discussion about how careful understanding can help allay irrational fears and phobias. Carousel The fearful Wild Thing-like monsters are comically depicted, and their problems are resolved with perfect pacing. School Library Journal
