BubbleCat vs. DragonBear

Penguin Workshop. Mar. 2022. 32p. Tr $14.99. ISBN 9780593223840.
PreS-Gr 3–As a blue cat—who also happens to be made of bubbles—BubbleCat must be careful at all times, skirting around everyday dangers such a heights, sticks, porcupines, and cacti. However, his most feared nemesis is the DragonBear: part dragon, part bear, part stick, but all grump and breathing fire. When BubbleCat interrupts DragonBear’s painting one day, a fierce chase ensues, and BubbleCat and DragonBear both end up learning more about each other and themselves. Digital sketches overlaid on full-color photographs of landscapes make for arresting visuals in a fun, inspiring story about overcoming fears and finding exceptional friendships.
VERDICT An easy addition to collections where Adam Rubin’s Dragons Love Tacos and Nancy Rose’s The Secret Life of Squirrels are popular.
