* "Rubin's voice-over narrator counsels Yerburt, Froofle, and Wumpus through their anxiety, coaching them, therapist-style, through their first encounter with actual bubbles. Salmieri's pen-and-ink lines give unexpected delicacy to the story [and] readers will take the hint about unreasonable fears, they’ll be back for giggle-fueled rereadings."
--Publisher's Weekly, starred review
"The fearful Wild Thing–like monsters are comically depicted, and their problems are resolved with perfect pacing."
--School Library Journal
"Funny words and pictures combine to delight . . . this amusing romp will encourage young readers to put their own fears in perspective."
--The Wall Street Journal
"Big Bad Bubble might help kids get a bit of perspective on their own fears, and should certainly make them laugh at bedtime — that moment when the monsters — or whatever lurks under their particular beds — start to worry them."
--The New York Times
