"At the sudden call of trouble, Mother took off at the double,
for the squealing left her reeling, made her terrified and tense,
saw the bubble for a minute, with the baby bobbing in it,
as it bibbled by the letterbox and bobbed across the fence."
As the baby bibble-bobbled over the town people began to panic and joined in the chase. Chrysta and Greville, Tybal and Sybil, Mr. Copple and the Mrs. ("a crabby couple") Mrs. Threeble with her needle were on the run lest the "bubble burst and vanish in the sky." It was a real "flum-a-diddle," and no one knew quite what to do, but then there was rascally Abel with his slingshot. Oh, no! What would happen if he burst the bubble?
This is one of those superb, exuberant books that only comes around once in a great while. It is an all-around pleaser that both children and adults will marvel over it. The art work meshes perfectly and captures the excitement of the chase. Much of the text swirls up and down following the bibble-bobble path the baby is taking. If you are an expressive reader, your young audience will be rapt with excitement when you read this story in rhyme! This is the Boston Globe Horn Book Award Winner for 2009.
The book is very cute. It is a challenge to read aloud due to all the rhyme words, sort of a tounge twister. The book can be used in story time and in the classroom. After reading the kids can try their hand and making their own bubble solution and seeing who can blow the biggest bubble.
