Happy Birthday Bubble Wrap Girl!

Celebrating the Two Year Publication of Bubble Wrap Girl!

Publication Date: June 2, 2017


Izzy Magee gets bumps and bruises when she does the things she likes--chasing her brother, dancing in the kitchen, and riding her bike. Getting hurt is a hang-up for Izzy, so one day she decides to cover herself in bubble wrap. Her plan works like a charm…until the bubble wrap gets in the way of doing the things she likes. Eventually, Izzy realizes that getting hurt is part of life--and she isn't going to let it get in the way of having fun!

About the Illustrator:

Little CA Nobens, the shortest kid in her kindergarten class, shot up like a weed in first grade.  She didn't know where her head or her knees or her elbows began or ended, until she was the tallest girl in eighth grade.  She was always clonking her noggin or stubbing her toe or rapping her wrist or bonking some bone on something.  She could have used miles and miles of bubble wrap!  Not having any, she just tried to sit still and draw pictures a lot.
