  • An exceptional novel that should not be missed!

    Bubba and Squirt’s Big Dig to China is a children’s book that will take young readers on an action-packed adventure which will entertain and delight them from start to finish. Bubba and Squirt’s Big Dig to China is one of the most well-developed children’s stories I have ever come across, and so I am so happy I have discovered this book because books with such a high quality such as this one are rare to come by! It is the sad truth that many children books are not written to a high standard, and I understand why some authors may write their children’s book this way because after all, children mostly want a fast-paced story and to look at colorful pictures, however, this is not always the best option. The child will most likely enjoy the story however they won’t remember it. Personally, as a mother, I look for children books which my children will remember and want to re-read, and Bubba and Squirt’s Big Dig to China is that book. Bubba and Squirt’s Big Dig to China is an expertly written children’s book with a story that is well developed and memorable and a story that I guarantee children with love thanks to its fast-paced but engaging narrative and the sensational story that unfolds. If you are a parent or know children in your family or friendship groups and want the child to read an engaging story which they won’t be able to stop thinking about, Bubba and Squirt’s Big Dig to China is that book! The book is a delight, and Sherry Ellis perfectly excites and charms her young readers from start to finish, and that is why I have to recommend this book to all children. The story of Bubba and Squirt’s Big Dig to China is a thrilling one thanks to the enthralling and action-packed moments as well as the unpredictable nature of the book that will have the readers turning the pages with haste from beginning to end. I love children books that involve a journey because usually in the journey the character develops and grows as they overcome events and battles which in turn adds to the development of the character and explores life lessons throughout the book and that is most certainly the case with Bubba and Squirt’s Big Dig to China. Sherry Ellis is an incredibly talented author who clearly knows how to write unique but engaging stories. It was evident to me from the start that Ellis is a passionate writer who surely loves entertaining children with her literature and putting a smile on children’s faces. I loved this about the author but what I loved the most about Ellis’s writing is her remarkable descriptions because they genuinely amazed me. Overall Bubba and Squirt’s Big Dig to China is an excellent book that will captivate readers from beginning to end with its twisty-turny plot and exciting narrative so I, of course, have to award the book five stars!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • I love the characters of Bubba and Squirt!

    Bubba and Squirt’s Big Dig to China is an adorable, heart-warming, and educational story about the misadventure of siblings Bubba and Squirt. Who says you can’t dig a hole to China?! Bubba’s big sister, that’s who. But Bubba just knows he can prove her wrong. So, with a magical shovel his grandpa found at a garage sale, Bubba begins digging his special hole to China under the annoying and watchful gaze of his sister. It’s all fun and games until unexpectedly, the ground begins to shake. Dirt pours into the hole Bubba so meticulously dug. He’s trapped and can’t get out! Then the hole swallows him and he is transported through a magic portal…right into the middle of a courtyard filled with Terracotta Warriors! Squirt, of course, is right on her brother’s heels, determined to protect and keep him safe. Now the two siblings are stuck in China, still not completely sure how they ended up there in the first place. But, the story isn’t over yet. Before Bubba and Squirt can even begin to grasp their surprising situation, an ancient Chinese ghost appears and orders the pair to find his missing pi, or else they can never return home! Bubba and Squirt must now navigate Chinese culture and people to find the ghost’s missing pi. Otherwise, they’ll be trapped in China forever! Opinion: I found this book to be remarkably entertaining and educational. While the reader follows Bubba and Squirt through their journey, they will subconsciously be learning about Chinese culture and belief systems. The book does not elevate one view point or another; it simply presents the facts as they are, which makes the read all the more enjoyable. I love the characters of Bubba and Squirt! They are completely age appropriate and each has their own voice. The two take turns narrating chapters, making it extremely entertaining to read their interpretations of events. Other characters are also developed well and add different elements to the story, helping it to move along and introduce more twists and turns. One thing that bothered me as I read this story was, surprisingly, the size of the font. It feels way too big, and at times I wondered if the font was enlarged purely so that book would appear to be longer. However, seeing as this book is geared towards those younger than myself, perhaps I am pointing out something that is completely normal for this age category. Despite the distracting font size, I found this story to be funny, cute, entertaining, and educational. I enjoyed reading it for the tidbits about Chinese culture almost more so than the story itself. The author did an amazing job integrating educational facts into a fictional story. This book is highly recommended!
