My Thoughts

I am not really sure what my opinion is about this book.  There are lessons in this book to be learned about deceit , lies and disobeying your parents.  Kids will like this story about a boy named Max that has a blueberry bubble gum bubble blow out the rear of his pajamas sending him flying to an adventure in Blueberry Bubble Gum World where he sees strange creatures. I know for a fact kids will enjoy the book because my young grandkids did crack-up over the story. No pun intended !

My grandkids highly recommend this book!   I am old school and find it inappropriate but who listens to me.  This is for the children it will get their attention and teach a lesson at the same time. That is exactly what this book does.  

I rated this book a 4 out of 5.

Disclosure:  I received a free copy of this book from Outskirt Press/elfa books for review. I was in no way compensated for this review.
