SPIDER Magazine September 2022


From bubblegum to bubble baths to bubbles so big kids can fit inside, bubbles are a blast—until they burst. Sail the seven seas without leaving your bathtub. Then discover high-flying real-life pirates and silly siblings who talk like pirates, much to their principal’s confusion.
