5.0 out of 5 stars Master bubble writing and your happiness is guaranteed! Sept. 14 2011
By FIRR-Kids! - Published on Amazon.com
Ah, bubble writing takes me back! If you live under a rock, bubble writing is hand-drawn letters that are so round and puffy that they look as if they are made from bubbles. It is also big FUN (once you learn how) and will enable you to make super sweet posters and design awesome logos. In short, it is the key to popularity. Okay, not really. But it is super fun and makes you feel artistically superior to the kids who live under rocks. Plus, Linda Scott guarantees it will make you happier. I feel 40% happier now and expect a 13% increase once I master that rainbow font.

You might think you master the basic bubble letter and you're done. Not so fast. There are 40 hand-drawn typefaces featured here, including robots, lightning strike, caveman, and ribbons. I like that she includes a font for darn near every season/holiday. It is hard to pick favorites, but if pressed, mine would be summer cakes (where every letter is covered with a small cap of sprinkles) and cactus.

Each font page has the entire alphabet written out, so you can see how to make every single letter. Directly above that are several inches of neat lines - space for practicing that font. Tucked in between all those fonts pages are goofy little projects: pages to make your own comic book, bookmarks, door hangers, holiday cards, party invitations, and much more. Scott does a wonderful job of not only presenting the fonts, but also demonstrating creative ways in which to employ them.

In this age of technology, you may be surprised to discover how cool your kids think it is to learn handwritten fonts. I distinctly remember someone showing me how to make bubble letters when I was in seventh grade, and immediately set to impressing my friends. I would have been a rock star with this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars a great gift for anyone who loves to play around with lettering Jan. 6 2012
By Katie C. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
When I was in junior high school, I longed to be one of those girls with super cute handwriting. I tried to practice my bubble writing but I never really got anywhere with it. Later on when I became a paper scrapper, I once again dreamed of creating my own fun lettering styles. Again, no dice for me.

When I saw this book I thought my daughter would enjoy it. I've been having a great time with it also. This book would be a great gift for anyone who wants to play around with their handwriting.
5.0 out of 5 stars and the kids were very excited and loved using this book Sept. 6 2014

I'm an art teacher to kindergarten through 8th graders, and this book is enormously popular with my 3rd-8th graders. I used it as a reference book for a lettering project, and the kids were very excited and loved using this book.

The great thing about this book is that all of the fonts are creative and thoughtful, but they are not overly technical. They are accessible enough that the kids don't feel intimidated to try them, and are able to build their own font ideas after seeing examples from this book.

I've had several students excitedly tell me that they purchased the book for themselves. Very cool!

A design flaw is that it doesn't lay flat, so that can be a bit difficult. I'm debating about cutting the binding off and getting it spiral-bound.

It really is a great resource. Beside the font examples inside, there are many activities and exercises. It would be a fun book to give to a budding young artist.
