About the book

An ordinary bubble may seem pretty harmless to you. To the monsters of La La Land, however, a fragile, shimmering bubble is an object of terror, and when the frightening habits of bubbles are detailed by a fear-mongering monster, Yerbert, Froofle, and Wumpus run away and cry. But with encouragement from the narrator and readers, the three monsters learn to confront their fears and triumph over bubbles! An original, offbeat, and funny take on conquering fears from the New York Times best-selling team behind Those Darn Squirrels! and Dragons Love Tacos

Reviews

* "Rubin's voice-over narrator counsels Yerburt, Froofle, and Wumpus through their anxiety, coaching them, therapist-style, through their first encounter with actual bubbles. Salmieri's pen-and-ink lines give unexpected delicacy to the story [and] readers will take the hint about unreasonable fears, they’ll be back for giggle-fueled rereadings."

--Publisher's Weekly, starred review

"The fearful Wild Thing–like monsters are comically depicted, and their problems are resolved with perfect pacing."

--School Library Journal

"Funny words and pictures combine to delight . . . this amusing romp will encourage young readers to put their own fears in perspective."

--The Wall Street Journal

"Big Bad Bubble might help kids get a bit of perspective on their own fears, and should certainly make them laugh at bedtime — that moment when the monsters — or whatever lurks under their particular beds — start to worry them."

--The New York Times
