Who is this kid with the funny name? Well, that depends on who you ask. Everybody who knows Melvin—his mom, his dad, his best friend Jimmy, his dog—even Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and the big ugly monster with three eyes who lives in his closet have a different opinion.  This original and riotous picture book has a lot to say—not only about Melvin, but also about perspective, point of view, and a six-and-a-half-year-old’s place in the world.

Praise for Who Is Melvin Bubble?

" Bruel, as always, builds terrific comic momentum ... A read-aloud treat—and fine inspiration for classroom biographies."
--Publishers Weekly
 
"Bright cartoon illustrations provide tongue-in-cheek commentary ... Young readers should find him familiar, and may be moved by his example to take similar stock of themselves."
--Kirkus Reviews
 
"While teachers will find this a delightful choice for exploring point of view or the concept of identity, children will simply think it's great fun."
--School Library Journal
 
"Delightful cartoon style characters and contents combine to produce really amusing visualizations of the wide-ranging answers to the title question."
