"A frothy, effervescent gift." -"Kirkus Reviews, " starred review
"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." Soon the baby is floating out of the house, above the fence, and all over town! Ebullient rhymes, joyful illustrations, and the new big-book format combine to create a delightful storytime experience. Winner of the 2009 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for Best Picture Book!
