The Bubble Collector is a collection of hilarious poems that everyone will enjoy.  Every topic you can think of is covered! From a list of what not to put down your shirt to a love story between the really old and really stale stuff found in the back of the refrigerator. The Bubble Collector will get you laughing!

I really enjoy reading poetry. Funny poetry is especially great to read, especially when it is done well. This book is a great example of that. The rhyme is very good and each poem reads well. The selection of different types of poetry too (e.g. haiku and limericks). The cheerful illustrations in the book add a lot to the text too. Mr. Madan wrote and illustrated a very fun poetry book any kid would enjoy!

Five out of five book worms!

    I’ve always struggled with reading serious poetry, but short and light is always fun! Love this!
