Join Max in his adventures through Blueberry Bubble Gum World and meet the fascinating creatures who live there-the Blueberry Boy, King Erudition, and the lumpy, moldy green evil Waywards. Will Max learn his lesson and find his way home? Find out in this thrilling journey!
This is a cute story with a great message to kids of the importance of being honest and trust worthy in everything you do. Max tells fibs and little white lies he has trouble following the rules and then covers up his misdeeds so he won’t get into trouble. When his dad brings home a bag of magic blueberry bubble gum he tells Max not to chew or swallow the gum until he learns the rules. Max goes to bed with the gum and his curiosity gets the better of him and he chews a piece of the best gum he ever tasted. When his mom calls to him he tries to hide the fact that he didn’t follow the rules again and swallows the gum. He is transported to a different world where he has to endure a test to be able to make it back home to his family. This is a great book to read to your kids, it’s never too early to teach them the importance of being honest and why it is important to follow the rules. The story has great graphics with bright colors that will keep the younger ones interested. I would say this is a book well suited for the 4-8 age group.
I gave this a 3 out of 5 star rating
