When Bumbling Bea was first published, I was very surprised by the reviews. I hoped middle school students would enjoy the story, but I never considered readers of all ages (some as young as seven and one a sixty-five year old grandma) would appreciate it, too. I’m flattered.
So, if you are seeking reviews of Bumbling Bea check out Amazon at http://tinyurl.com/lk5db54
There are nearly 50.
If you are wanting to read a few snippets, here are some:
- “Quirky, fun and intensely close capturing of middle school angst.”
- “In Bumbling Bea, author Deborah Baldwin creates an enjoyable look into growing up. Hilarity, missteps, and bungling follow as Bea and Michiko come to terms. The plot line is written skillfully.”
- “Deborah ensures that her story constantly generates mental images and tugs at heartstrings. The choice of words used reflect the effort that she must have put in to make this story both child-friendly and adult-friendly.”

Michiko slapped her script and blurted,” Ms. Phillips this script is inaccurate. This is a mistake. Pocahontas did not wear any clothes when John Smith met her. She was naked.”
The whole cast broke out in fits of laughter. The fifth graders were no longer bored and several turned bright red in the face. Peter’s eyes were about the size of a Frisbee when he choked out, “What?”
Ms.Phillips shushed the cast, “Yes, I know, Michiko. But I don’t think that would go over very well in a middle school. Sometimes we have to bend the facts of history just a little to make it theatre friendly and acceptable to the public.
I heard Peter mutter, “Oh man. That was close for a second.”

Popular kids have a special talent that nobody else noticed but me. They are fortune tellers. They can see the future for all of us.
“So-and-So is on her way to Broadway!” and “Hollywood, here comes So-and-So!” the popular kids say after the school play is over. Sometimes at football or basketball games or maybe even at a pep rally one of them will yell, “Number fifty-two (or whatever number the star player wore), to the NFL for you!” or I’d hear one of the girls say, “That Tiffany girl (or whatever cutsey name the star cheerleader was named) should be in ‘Pump it Up.” She’s as good a cheerleader as the (insert name of hot teen actress of the week) in that movie.”
Popular kids kept close to talented kids in case some of the talent might
rub off on them.
No one stayed close to me. That’s for sure.
