Bubble Troubles is the third in the Double Trouble Series, stories about 9-year-old Amish twins named Mattie and Mark Miller. The twins share a special bond, but have their differences. Mark loves his cats, and Mattie loves her dog. Mattie has become worrisome about issues over which she has no control, and Mark continually attempts to comfort his twin sister. Mark has a few worries of his own. The children love blowing bubbles and watching their cats and dog jump and bite at the bubbles. They typify young Amish children and their normal daily activities growing up on a farm.
Wanda Brunstetter pens the sweetest children's stories, tales about Amish children and their true-to-life activities. Her characters represent typical 9-year-olds, Amish or English. Mattie and Mark's activities differ from the English by their Amish way of life, dress and daily responsibilities on the farm, but they're children who share the same concerns and enjoy the same activities as all children. I enjoyed Bubble Troubles myself, and I can envision my granddaughter enjoying this series of stories when she is age appropriate.
