Bubbles Homes and Fish Farts by Fiona Bayrock and illustrated by Carolyn Conahan

Reviewed by Miss Dewey at Orenda

Four paw prints. Well, I know what you’re thinking. If you’re a kid you’re thinking… “What an awesome title. I’ve GOT to read it!” If you’re older than a kid you’re thinking… “Not another lousy book using bodily functions to get a kid’s attention.” I admit it; I was with the second group. But I decided to flip through the book and I was pleasantly surprised. The pictures were beautiful, soft water color paintings with lots of details. So I decided to read the book to see if the information was as interesting as the pictures. I had no idea there was so much that bubbles could do. Some animals use bubbles for traveling, some animals use bubbles to keep warm, some animals use bubbles to find food, and fish use bubbles to…well…you’ll have to read that for yourself. If you like this book you should visit the author and illustrator websites at http://www.fionabayrock.com/ and http://www.carolyndigbyconahan.com/ to see what other books they have made. Or, if you want to learn about more interesting animals visit http://nationalzoo.si.edu/default.cfm. But you might be wondering why I only gave the book four paw prints. I still don’t like the title.
