Big Bad Bubble
( by Adam Rubin/ illus Daniel Salmieri, Clarion $16.99 Score: )

It's good fun to be more knowledgeable than the big scary monsters in a story and these monsters maybe big, but they are anything than scary! In fact, you could call them the scardy-cat monsters of La-la land. What is it they worry about? Mostly it's bubbles that they fear and the exaggerated claims of the harm they might cause. This is all because one of them was once hit by a bubble gum bubble that hit him in the face. Spoiler alert: In the end the monsters overcome their fear of bubble, but if itís not bubbles, there's always something new to worry about--isn't there? This storybook reminded the reviewer of the 24-hour news cycle spin. A fun way to introduce kids to the idea of not believing everything you hear. 4-8
