Booklist Reviews 2009 October #2

A child unleashes his imagination in this after-lights-out adventure. Awake in the inky depths of night, Harry sneaks out of bed and creeps across the shadowed room to nab his Super Duper Bubble Blooper off the shelf. Filling the air with bubbles is an enchanting diversion, until one carries his stuffed sidekick Horsie off into the cosmos. Harry snags his helmet and goggles, straddles a toy rocket, and lifts off, zooming past planets and comets en route to a thrilling rescue. Agnew's art uses an effectively limited color palette, faded dot patterns, and crisp lines to create a retro-cartoon feel, and Harry's toys (a blocky robot, a needle-nosed rocket ship) could have been lifted from a '50s rumpus room. In the end, the inseparable Harry and Horsie return to earth and bed, finally tuckered out. With dashing visuals that capture Harry's deep-space adventure with verve to spare, and a comforting resolution, this has potential to be a bedtime favorite. Copyright 2009 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2010 Spring

Late at night Harry slips out of bed to play with his bubble-making gun. Soon the bubbles carry away items in Harry's room--including his beloved Horsie. Harry travels though space to rescue his stuffed friend. The story is illustrated with pictures reminiscent of Pop Art, which provide excitement that's missing from the text (written by David Letterman's former au pair).

PW Reviews 2009 August #5

Pop art la Roy Lichtenstein lends a retro vibe to this debut for both Van Camp and Agnew, about a boy and his sidekick, a toy horse. On a moonlit night, Harry lies awake in his bedroom, where planets, stars and rockets hang from the ceiling, and eyes his soap-bubble ray gun. "Wherever Harry went, Horsie went too, so they crept across the room" to grab the Super Duper Bubble Blooper. The Blooper's enormous bubbles float Harry's toys out the window, lofting the helpless rag doll Horsie into outer space. Harry dons a helmet and rides a streamlined rocket to the rescue, passing by his racecars, seen tearing around the rings of Saturn, and his kitten, lolling about in the Milky Way. Agnew's 1960s-style illustrations, in high-contrast black and white with faded blue, yellow and red accents, resemble screen prints from the Sunday funnies, complete with movement and sound effects ("zooom!!!"). Silhouetted cityscapes and planets serve as backgrounds, and Harry strikes several heroic poses while saving Horsie (who doesn't display much personality). A typical dream sequence, significantly elevated by the art. Ages 3–6. (Sept.)
