Lots of fun to read aloud! There is a lot of rhyming, a bit of alliteration, and many tongue twister lines. Great for lovers of blowing bubbles!
Great for older siblings too! I enjoyed the wacky story for the most part, but for me it went on a bit too long and started to get just a bit tiresome. But the screwball comedy and the language used are delectable, and seems to me that it took great skill to write it so masterfully.
Overall, this book is a joy. View all 32 comments. Sep 30, Manybooks rated it liked it Shelves: childrens-poetry , picture-books , book-reviews. Still an entertainingly engaging enough little interlude is Bubble Trouble and likely because of the rollicking poetry, with ample plays on words and fun alliterations a perfect choice for a read aloud, although my ageing eyes do rather wish that the font size had been a trifle larger and the letters a bit thicker in circumference.
But truly and sadly, from a total and complete personal reading pleasure point of departure and view, I have definitely found Bubble Trouble a bit ho-hum and much too tediously drawn out and therefore, its Boston Globe Horn Book Award notwithstanding, for me, three stars is the absolute maximum I am willing to consider for Bubble Trouble.
Jul 05, Kathryn rated it it was amazing Shelves: childrens-picture-books. 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.
This is a great story for those who love words; as a child, it would have just made me giggle with adoring all those fun words, string together so charmingly, creating a zany and delicious read-aloud.

Pandemonium ensues when Mabel's bubble breaks away, enveloping her baby brother, and taking him on an extraordinary flight: "The baby didn't quibble. The rhyming text is simply delightful, tripping off the tongue with a rollicking rhythm that makes the foot tap.
I loved the text itself, the story being told, and the entertaining illustrations from Dunbar. This book is made for reading aloud, and would be the ideal story-hour selection! I'm so glad it has come back into print! View 2 comments. Jun 17, Alex rated it it was amazing Shelves: children. One of our favorites. Written entirely in sixteenth-note alliterative tongue twisters, it's not for bed time - not at all a relaxing experience - but tons of fun to trade stanzas with your partner, and will probably be even more fun to watch the kid fail at reading it if he ever stops failing to read at all.
Jan 13, Aysheh M rated it liked it. It was an interesting children's book, with a lot of quirky rhymes. The cover and colors grabbed my attention and began to question what the book was actually about.
The storyline was okay, but the book was rather too long and made me feel bored. Oct 09, Cheryl rated it liked it. I definitely would have loved this more when my patient sons were little enough.
Great to read aloud to them. My youngest would never have sat still through the whole thing though. And, I admit, adult me almost gave up, too. I really liked the random bit in the middle where the crabby couple got cured of their limps. This was a fun story to follow with humorous action and possibly tongue-twisting rhymes and text. I think it will be an enjoyable story to use in storytime as I'm trying not to do all bedtimey-themed books for PJ storytime.
Wasn't quite their fault, either, but the slightest noises or movements had me completely losing their attention and trying to gain it back ag This was a fun story to follow with humorous action and possibly tongue-twisting rhymes and text.
Wasn't quite their fault, either, but the slightest noises or movements had me completely losing their attention and trying to gain it back again. Having my mind elsewhere at the same time did not help matters. Then there was the loud family in the corner where I have to face a bit as I read from the book. I know they were drowning me out, no matter how much I kept trying to get louder. I felt I was screaming--and this is not an easy book to read aloud with it's tongue twisting and non-straight lines of text.
I was so hoarse by the end and didn't feel I did the book justice. I was able to focus. I got the rhythms and pauses better. Unfortunately, I had a smaller and younger crowd and I think some of it was completely going over their head. I knew a couple of bigger words would never be gotten, but I think the tongue twists and action words were lost, too.
They kind of got the pictures, but they were antsy. Perhaps too long, too. I don't know. I'm thinking this will be a definite hit for a group with older kids. So maybe I'll try a school-aged group in the future.
Well, even with the difficulties, having read the book more I enjoy it even more. Original rating: 3 stars. New rating: 5 stars. Not as much. The 1st half they were not quite following. I'm OK doing a new word or two, but this book was full of them. Still, I had them tell me ideas for how to save the baby and they were a bit more into the book by the end because of that. MUCH better. The K-3rd are probably the best for this book.
They enjoyed the reading, and liked the story as well. The older kids smiled, but tried not to show more emotion than that. I warned ahead of time that there would be some tongue twisters for me. I only got jumbled up maybe 3 times!
