Booklist Review

PreS-Gr. 1. In this rollicking tale, a blob of pink bubble gum melting in the middle of the road causes big trouble for five animals that get stuck in the chewy-gooey icky-sticky mess. Wheeler's snappy rhyming verse, loaded with silly words and onomatopoeia, begs to be read aloud: Yuck! Ew! The Shrew's stuck, too! / Gooey shrew, gooey shrew / Pointy-nose-all-gluey shrew / Stomping, shouting \lquote FOOEY!' shrew / Can't get loose. The clever language is just part of the appeal of this well-designed picture book. Creative variations in size, style, and placement of text add visual excitement, as do the bold colors and patterns of Huliska-Beith's acrylic-and-fabric collage illustrations. Wildly exaggerated expressions and body language enhance the slapstick nature of the story and provide plot clues for pre-readers who are paging through on their own. --Lauren Peterson Copyright 2004 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-A fast-paced, rhyming story with vibrant, bouncing illustrations. A toad begins the tale about a gob of bubble gum found on the road. Before long, the little creature gets stuck, is joined by a shrew, a goose, a bee, and a crow. A truck is zooming down the road so the only way out of this sticky predicament is to chew, chew, chew. That is just what the animals do until a bear comes by and more trouble seems imminent. Fortunately, it gets stuck, a hen comes along, and the adventure begins anew. Enjoyable and energetic, this repetitive tale is just the kind of wacky fun that young children love.-Andrea Tarr, Corona Public Library, CA (c) Copyright 2010.
