Notes From Your Bookseller

The quintessential "outdoor" book from Jacqueline Davies, author of The Lemonade War and art by the brilliant Sonia Sanchez (Evelyn Del Rey is Moving Away). Taking place at a public pool and mostly underwater, there's friendship, diversity and creativity. There’s also a spread that so perfectly depicts what happens when the thunder starts rumbling and the lightning strikes but you're just having too much fun in the pool! Bubbles … Up! is easily a new summertime favorite.

An everyday visit to the pool transforms into an unforgettable celebration of the water in this remarkable picture book from Jacqueline Davies, the award-winning author of children's classic The Lemonade War, and Sonia Sánchez, the illustrator of Meg Medina's Evelyn Del Rey Is Moving Away.

A day at the community pool is full of unwater magic—dunking and diving with friends; somersaulting, walking on your hands, and bursting up through the surface like a tortoise. But when a thunderstorm comes and a little brother ventures too close to the pool’s edge, will our main character be quick enough and brave enough to save the day?

In this energetic read-aloud, the words swim off the pages as the underwater world comes to life through lush, dynamic illustrations and visual poetry. Journey to an imaginative world where, always and forever, bubbles . . . rise . . . UP!
