Bubbles don’t last long.
But bubbles are lovely,
Full of colors, floating on the breeze.
What can you do with a bubble?
Using simple words, and a mixture of silly imagined scenes and more realistic ones, it looks at both the charm and the transitory nature of bubbles, and helps its young audience appreciate how we can take joy even in the impermanent. Children can giggle at a little girl bringing a bubble to a friend’s house or taking it for a walk, complete with leash, through the streets of her town. Then they can lose themselves in the lovely settings showing children enjoying bubbles for what they are.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wrote the manuscript many years ago and no longer remember what gave rise to it — but I'd bet it was a bubble!
You can't kiss a bubble . . . .
If you try to kiss a bubble, it'll POP!

You can't keep a bubble as a pet.

Sometimes, if you're lucky — and very gentle — you can hold one in your hand. But only for a little while.
[. . .]
if you blow on bubbles, they dance!

Karen A. Wyle has wanted to be a writer since she was about nine years old. By the age of ten, she had attempted (and thought she had written) a novel, 200 penciled pages which her saint of a mother typed and bound so Karen could feel "published."
When Wyle was pregnant with her first child, she sat musing on the front deck one day, looking at the oak trees, and came up with a short picture book MS she titled "Mommy Calls Me Acorn." Over the next decade or so, she wrote other picture book MSS, but it has taken until 2021, with eleven novels under her belt (one of them YA), for her to finally seek illustrators for some of them. You Can't Kiss A Bubble, illustrated by Siski Kalla, is the first one published.
