Blue, Barry & Pancakes: Escape from Balloonia
About This Book
Blue, Barry, and Pancakes are best friends! They love building models, reading about shovels, and going on INTERGALACTIC adventures?!
One day, Blue and Barry are enjoying a quiet afternoon when Pancakes bounds in with a surprise-- she's made a rocket out of balloons! And a whole planet named Balloonia! Blue and Barry agree to take a quick peek at Pancakes' creations, but what's meant to be a fun tour quickly turns into an ordeal as the gang finds themselves trapped by the Balloonians, a species of balloon that's come to life. And if our heroes want to make it home, they'll have to overcome the biggest and meanest Balloonian of all-- BALLOON KONG!
Like all friends, they can make mistakes... but at the end of the day, they always have each other’s backs. And tops, and sides, and fronts, too!
