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.
Follow the hilarious efforts of the townsfolk as they chase the baby far across the town in an effort to get him down from the bubble safe and sound.
The book shows the fun that can be had with language, and will be enjoyed by children over a wide age range. Polly Dunbar's illustrations support the text well, with clear characterisation and a wonderful array of facial expressions. Altogether this is a delight. English 4-11
