About The Book

When bubble creatures start disappearing from the World of Make-Believe, Daisy and Posey are on the case in this eighth Daisy Dreamer chapter book!

When Posey spots the quarter vending machines with plastic bubbles filled with tiny toys at Daisy’s local store, he tries to talk to them. But when they don’t answer, Daisy explains that the bubbles are just toys in the real world. So Posey invites Daisy to the World of Make-Believe, where, of course, there’s an entire world inside of those machines! Bubble creatures happily live in their plastic capsules, but it turns out there’s a tiny problem. A giant has been “borrowing” those bubble friends! Can Daisy and Posey save those bubbles before they go pop?

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Daisy Dreamer chapter books are perfect for emerging readers.


Pop Goes the Bubble Trouble

CHAPTER ONE Cleanup on Aisle Nine

I turn around just in time to see an orange tumble off the tippy-top of the orange pile and sploosh all over the floor.

That’s the third one in two minutes!

Mom and I are at the grocery store—one of the best places in the world. Obviously. Who doesn’t love food?

But something keeps knocking the fruit over. And it’s not me! I pinkie swear!

Just in case, I steer extra clear of the bananas.


Across the aisle, two peaches splatter to the floor like juicy yellow fruit bombs. And that’s when I see him, sitting on top of the peaches like a little purple monkey with antlers.

“Posey!” I whisper loudly. “What are you doing up there?”

“Shopping!” he shouts with a big sticky grin.
