Bubbles are for popping, fishing, talking-and for sailing, keeping warm, and even shooting hoops! Who knew animals used bubbles in so many ways? Learn how the water spider builds an underwater bubble home, how snapping shrimp pop bubbles to scare other animals, and how dolphins play with bubbles as if it’s a game. Whether they are riding, breathing, or making bubbles, one thing is for sure-animals use bubbles in amazing ways. Real-world science meets tongue-in-cheek humor to describe how animals use bubbles. Lighthearted conversational text is accompanied by delightful full-bleed watercolour illustrations. Fiona Bayrock has written fifteen books and numerous articles and stories for children. She lives in Chilliwack. Carolyn Conahan is the staff illustrator for Cricket magazine and lives in Portland, Oregon.
