22581 Mister Wubble's Bubbles. Merryman/Cady.

Mister Wubble's Bubbles.

With the help of his niece, Molly Ann and the love of his favorite pet bubble Eliza, Mister Wubble blows beautiful bubbles for the children all day long. The bubbles mean well, but they bounce a lot and long to fly free, so Peter Potter, who is good at clumping, sits heavily on the roof to keep it closed: what happens when the bubbles escape, carrying Mister Wubble and Peter with them, and how Molly Ann invents bubbles with wings. 

Merryman, the poet Mildred Plew, wrote four children's books and many stories and poems for children's magazines. Without the relentlessly whimsical tone of some 20's books, this is a happy, playful story with believable characters. The earlier G. Volland book came in a box, this spiral bound with jacket is unusual.
