Little Charlie blows bubbles and is caught up in one so large it floats him away out the window of his room and onto an adventure. Along the way he meets several who help him face issues.
First is a nervous and frightened squirrel who hides in a pumpkin (jack o lantern) and calls himself Paulie Pumpkin. Despite being scared, he agrees to help Charlie find his way because Charlie is lost.
Next we meet Teddy the worn out teddy bear who offers softness, comfort, and encouragement.
We also meet Honey bee and Mean bee. Honey bee is sweet (of course) and helpful. And Mean been is a fighter bee that bursts bubbles and defends the hive.
The adventure progresses and due to the kindness of friends Charlie finds his way back home. The story is good for preschoolers and perhaps first graders. It is written to be read to a child. Format is that of a picture book, but it is a wordy story.
It is charming to think of the author as the father of Charlie telling his child this cute, teachable story and then publishing it for others to enjoy.
