Product Description

From Amazon

Welcome to Blobbieworld, a land where Blobbies--pleasant, shape-changing space creatures--live and play. Here the seven youngest Blobbies, named for the colors of the rainbow, learn how to blobbiemorph into triangles, hexagons, cubes, pyramids, and other shapes. All’s peaceful until Blobbie Violet and Blobbie Indigo take a notion to go back into space and investigate the forbidden fruits there. In no time, the naughty baby Blobbies have awakened the slumbering Blobbie Void, releasing an army of evil Hexacones. The Blobbie children have no choice but to escape to a "long forgotten world" called Earth. Will they ever be able to vanquish the Hexacones and return to their beloved Blobbieworld?

Author/illustrator Jorge’s unusual picture book--part science fiction, part fantasy, part personality type test--manages to tell an exciting space adventure story while educating readers on such complicated shape concepts as polyhedrons and polygons. Pages in the back provide information about shapes, as well as a chart for readers to use to determine what Blobbie they most resemble. Blobbie Red, for example, also known as The Warrior, is "Athletic, Energetic, Passionate, Self-Loving, Spontaneous, Instinctive and Courageous." A CD-ROM is included, featuring "The Blobbie’s Shape Challenge," animations, an interactive personality chart, songs, and a bonus adventure story. (Ages 6 to 12) --Emilie Coulter

My kids (ages 4 and 7) absolutely love this book. They enjoy reading the book, and we spend a lot of time listening to the fun songs that come on the CD ROM (that is included for free with the book) in the car. They also really like the games on the CD ROM and would play for hours if I would let them! This book is fun to read (for me too), has a good storyline and fabulous illustrations. I'm going to by the other book by this author! I think you get a lot for your money too.

My 6-year-old loves to read this book on his own now and study the pictures and learn about each of the Blobbies. He has memoriezed what each of the blobbies does and has figured out which type of Blobbies each of us in the family is.
The art is very rich and engaging and a joy for the older child in your family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book! Nov. 3 2003
Format:Hardcover
Here Come The Blobbies is a great fantasy story for young children! It leads readers into the wonderful world of the blobbies, using creativity to entrap young children in the story. It begins the enchanting stories of the blobbies, and I'm sure young children can't wait for the next book, if one, to come out!

This book is too cool for words! My kids just can't have enough of the book and CD-ROM!
Excellent sci-fi for kids, with a nice message about the power of knowledge.
And the "blobbie color personality chart" is fun for adults also (I found out I am a Blobbie Blue! :)
