Little Mabel blew a bubble and it caused a lot of trouble... Such a lot of bubble trouble in a bibble-bobble way. For it broke away from Mabel as it bobbed across the table, Where it bobbled over Baby, and it wafted him away. When little Mabel's bubble gets away from her, it's he...r baby brother who gets into trouble. Soon he's floating out of the house, above the fence, and all over town! It's up to Mabel, Mother, and the rest of the townspeople to get him safely back down. Who knew that so much trouble could come from one little bubble? it's meant to be read aloud--'Again!'--and will lead both breathless readers and listeners to delighted giggles... A frothy, effervescent gift. - Kirkus, starred reviewRead more
