Far from writing a long screed listing the reasons The Trouble with Gumballs should neither by bought nor read, I will instead write the following:
The Trouble with Gumballs should have been a 2,000-5,000 word magazine article.
It is good for nothing more and the book comes with all the problems attendant with being used for more than a magazine article.
That is all.
This book was received, free of charge, from the Goodreads First Reads program.
