It's a good book, but it's hard to keep the kids entertained with it because it is a little difficult to read and keep the rythm. The rhymes used are pretty complex for a childrens book. Great story, but the kids were losing interest as whoever reads it seems to have to really focus on reading it.

I like this book. It is one big tongue twister. I also enjoy the illustrations. I think my 5 month old son enjoys the rhythm and rhymes, as he stares at me the entire time I read it. My husband tried to read it once, got all twisted and gave up.

Oh, what a lovely book. I read it to my five-year old grandson, and we both laughed at the delightful story and the clever, clever use of rhymes. Our favourite line (and I hope I'm remembering this correctly - I've only read the book once) was "treble Abel tripled trouble with a pebble". The pictures reflect the story beautifully.

This is one of those superb, exuberant books that only comes around once in a great while! Horn Book Award Winner 2009 June 27 2009
By D. Fowler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mabel was sitting at the table blowing bubbles. The kitty was sitting on the table watching the baby and the baby was watching the kitty. All of a sudden one of those bubbles was a lot of "bubble trouble in a bibble-bobble way." It floated across the table and bobbled her baby brother and "wafted him away!" Oh, my . . . Mabel and the kitty were in hot pursuit of the baby in the bubble and when she called to her mother the alarm was on.

"At the sudden call of trouble, Mother took off at the double,
for the squealing left her reeling, made her terrified and tense,
saw the bubble for a minute, with the baby bobbing in it,
as it bibbled by the letterbox and bobbed across the fence."

As the baby bibble-bobbled over the town people began to panic and joined in the chase. Chrysta and Greville, Tybal and Sybil, Mr. Copple and the Mrs. ("a crabby couple") Mrs. Threeble with her needle were on the run lest the "bubble burst and vanish in the sky." It was a real "flum-a-diddle," and no one knew quite what to do, but then there was rascally Abel with his slingshot. Oh, no! What would happen if he burst the bubble?

This is one of those superb, exuberant books that only comes around once in a great while. It is an all-around pleaser that both children and adults will marvel over it. The art work meshes perfectly and captures the excitement of the chase. Much of the text swirls up and down following the bibble-bobble path the baby is taking. If you are an expressive reader, your young audience will be rapt with excitement when you read this story in rhyme! This is the Boston Globe Horn Book Award Winner for 2009.

are bubbles really trouble? June 15 2009
By Melissa Sack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mabel is busy blowing bubbles on day and it turns into a big problem. the bubble that she has blown is HUGE and it surounds her baby brother and carries him away into the air! As the wind blows poor Baby floats throuh the town. The town people have to work together to try and save the baby.

The book is very cute. It is a challenge to read aloud due to all the rhyme words, sort of a tounge twister. The book can be used in story time and in the classroom. After reading the kids can try their hand and making their own bubble solution and seeing who can blow the biggest bubble.

wonderful rhythm & rhymes Nov. 9 2009
By SMC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is irresistible -- you can't help reading it aloud, over and over. It has a fabulous rhythm to it, especially with rhymes embedded throughout the sentences (not just at the ends). Plus Margaret Mahy's usual sense of mischief. We found it at the library but will be buying a copy.

Our absolute favorite for reading aloud. Jan. 19 2012
By Juniecat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The description may say for ages 3 and up, but our 1-year-old sits riveted when we pull this book out. I'm hoping it stays one of his favorites as he gets older, because when children start demanding the same book over and over again, you can only hope it's as much fun to read as this one! Great for introducing some more advanced words too. After all, how many characters in picture books have "nefarious intentions"?

6 star rating!!!!! Oct. 11 2009
By L. Andrews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My goodness, this was the MOST challenging but definately one of the most fun books I've ever read to my daughters. It is such a clever story and the tongue-twisting sentences made us giggle throughout the entire book. I am sooo impressed and would give it a higher rating if I could.
