The Gumazing Gum Girl!, Book 1 Chews Your Destiny (Paperback)
While you can see the picture of this new, plucky, young superhero, Gabby Gomez, here, you have to pick up the book to take advantage of its scratch-and-sniff, bubblegum-scented goodness! The story is engaging as well, featuring every day villainy in the form of a purse snatcher, a snotty teacher, and a nebby classmate in this first book of an on-going series. The end of the book, though, gives a peek at the Big Bad who is hatching a plan to destroy Gabby. This is a great option for beginning readers. [Lydia]— From The Gumazing Gum Girl! Chews Your Destiny
