Mike Joseph had some new bubblegum, one that when he blew a bubble, made him float. School friends Skim and Teddy dared Mike to chew 20 pieces of the bubblegum and blow 20 bubbles. Mike accepted the challenge, but with each bubble that he blew he got higher and higher. The next minute he heard a zzzzzzz coming towards him, a mosquito, a giant mosquito, a skeeter. The skeeter flew straight into the bubbles, but it didn’t pop them all. With it stuck in the bubblegum, Mike let go of the bubbles and the skeeter and the bubblegum floated off into the forest. Not wanting to tell people that he could float, the three friends told people that they had saved Mike’s dog from the skeeter, people thought that they were heroes, but Mike didn’t feel, nor want to be a hero. The school even put on a play about the children’s bravery, so when the town became overridden with the giant mosquito’s, they look towards Mike to help them get rid of them, a very scared Mike. The Great Skeeter Battle, is a fun, hilarious older children’s book. It will capture their imaginations, not only with the idea that bubblegum can make you float, but with the idea of giant mosquito’s, ones big enough to steal cows!! Starting out as a lonely, not very confident young boy, Mike’s characters grew as the book progressed, especially when he knew he couldn’t let people down, he had to face his fears and conquer them. The book has great illustrations, which perfectly capture the moments of each chapter. The story is a little predictable, and doesn’t have many twists to it. It felt like reading one of the old classics, as Mike is just a normal young boy thrown into a strange, scary situation. On a side note, I’d never heard the word skeeter used to describe a mosquito before.
