Nearly 100 years ago, a man named Walter Diemer worked for a candy company in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  His job was working with numbers.  But when his company began to develop a new kind of chewing gum that would also make bubbles, Walter got curious. He experimented with a variety of secret ingredients and invented a concoction that made bubbles, stayed soft, and tasted good.  And the rest is history!  Whether you like bubble gum or not, this is a fascinating account of how it came to be, along with a lot of interesting facts about gum.  Can chewing gum help you concentrate, lose weight, AND help prevent tooth decay?  Read this book to find out.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2011-2012)
