Publisher Comments:

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 from readersand#8212;and#8220;Go on, Wumpus, you can do it. (Tell Wumpus he can do it.)and#8221;and#8212;the three learn to confront their fears and triumph over the bubbles! An original, offbeat, and giggle-inducing take on conquering fears from the New York Times best-selling team responsible for the groundbreakingand#160;Those Darn Squirrels! books.

Review:

"Austin's (Countdown with Milo and Mouse) monsters — fuzzy, shapeless blobs with googly eyes and big smiles — look a lot like Muppets, and they're similarly loud and boisterous. They're equipped with crayons and paint, and they eagerly describe what they're doing ('Scribble! Scribble! Drip! Splash! Dribble!'). After messy opening scenes involving crayon-scrawling and paint-splashing, three primary-colored monsters announce their favorite colors (their own, of course). 'Red is the color of roar! and snore! and more! more! more!' yells the red monster; the blue one gets so carried away, he starts to eat his favorite crayon. Next, the three give some smaller, gray monsters colors of their own. 'What new favorite color can we make for you?' they ask. 'Orange!' shouts one gray monster. The red and yellow monsters scribble frantically all over the gray monster ('Scribble, scribble, mix, dance, and wiggle! Mixing red and yellow makes orange!'), who emerges orange. Despite the friendly chaos, the pages retain a crisp, commercial look, with a glossy finish and mixed-media images that pop against backdrops of white. Whether children retain the ideas of color mixing, they'll be thoroughly entertained. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Four monsters have to confront their worst fearand#8212;bubblesand#8212;and are gently nudged into facing bubbles head-on. Aand#160;fresh and funny look at overcoming fears from a best-selling team.

Mike Austin has created a wonderful picture book for little ones. Not only is this book a beautifully illustrated colorful book it is educational. Austin cleverly introduces the subject of primary colors and what colors are created when they are mixed. Your toddler will love it and so will you!
