Editorial 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 "
