I love bubbles, don’t you? Sadly, though, they don’t last long. They drift upward and float around briefly before popping. Pamela James has a different story. The Orange and Ginger Soapy Shampoo: A Bubble's Story follows the adventures of two magical bubbles, M.E. and Lumy. They have plans of their own that go beyond a brief float and a burst into extinction. Created by a magical family shampoo recipe that’s full of orange, ginger, laughter, and love, a potion formulated generations ago to cure itchy scalp, these two bubbles plan to escape the shampoo bottle and float out the window to explore the world. They’re about to meet all kinds of mystical beings, including two big bubbles in the sky in the form of Bright Bubble and Blue Bubble, or, as we know them, the Sun and the Moon. But there’s so much more to their magical journey, as these two enchanting bubbles will learn to work together, make friends, care about others, and seek adventure within the confines of their creation.
Pamela James' middle-grade early chapter book The Orange and Ginger Soapy Shampoo is full of love, laughter, and a lot of magic. Young readers of all ages will love this unusual story as they follow the adventurous bubbles who escape oblivion to explore the world. Told in simple language so beginners can follow it themselves, the text is accompanied by marvelous illustrations that add another dimension to the tale. Friendship and courage bind these two bubbles together forever as they venture forth. They have a lot of lessons to learn on their journey, much as young people will have to face. Full of excitement and adventure, this book will appeal to those who have imaginations that know no boundaries. I loved it.
