Informative and (would be) interesting, if it was condensed to a quarter of the contents. Imagine yourself reading 144 pages straight of what feels like the back of a cereal box. Some of it is insightful, entertaining, stupid, clever, and all of the above, but you're sick of it well before the mid-mark and don't care to see another cereal box (or information bubble on bubble gum history)!
I purchased this long ago to complement my bubble unit. Yeah, it didn't ever really fit in. This is all about bubble gum bubbles. I am sure those who are into that enjoy this. For me, I wasn't interested so it was only all right.
I got this book at a book fair when I was in elementary school and read it. It's interesting. It tells you everything you could ever want to know about bubblegum.
VERY neat book about the history of bubblegum, how it's made, who invented it, flavoring, advertising, production, and more! I really liked it!
