REVIEW: Bubble Trouble By Tom Percival

BOOK NAME: BUBBLE TROUBLE

AUTHOR & ILLUSTRATOR: TOM PERCIVAL

PUBLISHER: BLOOMSBURY USA

PAGES: 32

AGE RECOMMENDED: 3+

Ruben and Felix were best friends and did everything together. Their favourite game was to blow bubbles and one day Ruben said I can blow a much bigger bubbles than you. This turned into a competition between the two friends and eventually started to fight. They both went to an extreme to win the competition and their friendship came under a test. They even went as far as cheating to try to blow the biggest bubble. Will they realize the power of friendship rather than the silly competition?

A book filled with many flaps and the story goes by lifting each flap and finding small snippets beneath it. The illustrations are beautiful and it’s just another Percival styled book. When you flip the pages, you can find quirky pictures of the machine and the bubble competition judges are wonderfully illustrated.

A story apt for older kids, too, and one can remind them not to have a competition between friends and not to have any silly encounters.

I loved the ending, how both friends patched up, and that’s a beautiful reminder for adults, too. I usually wonder whether a happy ending is only for fictional books and won’t the real-life adults don’t experience that. I have lost many virtual friends this year over petty, silly issues and I hope we can patch up real soon.
