Bartholomew and the Oobleck : (Caldecott Honor Book)
Join Bartholomew Cubbins in Dr. Seuss's Caldecott Honor-winning picture book about a king's magical mishap! Bored with rain, sunshine, fog, and snow, King Derwin of Didd summons his royal magicians to create something new and exciting to fall from the sky. What he gets is a storm of sticky green goo called Oobleck--which soon wreaks havock all over his kingdom! But with the assistance of the wise page boy Bartholomew, the king (along with young readers) learns that the simplest words can sometimes solve the stickiest problems.

Our customer reviews
This is a lovely book, quite long but awesome to read to a class, and then create your own oobleck! We had two types one with lux soap flakes and the other with cornflour, the students had to decide on which one was oobleck based on the clues in the book :)show moreby Lauren Webb
