From the Publisher:
FromA Very Small Something:
Somewhere past the wrinkled maps, and under|another sun, where favourite earrings find new ears|and missing marbles run, the hillsides made|their marvelous shapes for a town called Covington
And a great pink factory as long as the breeze|weighed truckfuls and truckfuls of bubblegum.
Olivia Bezzlebee lives by the sea in a fantastic town with the world's biggest bubblegum factory, where its citizens blow bubbles all day. But Olivia can't blow a single one and feels as if everyone looks down on her. Leaving Covington to find a place where she might belong, she learns the true meanings of family and home.
A Very Small Something, beautifully illustrated by Alexander Griggs-Burr, is a story to which all childrenand any tuned-in parentwill be able to relate. Blowing bubbles may indeed be a very small something . . . but when you are a small child and it's the thing you most want to do, a bubble can mean the whole world.
