The fifth volume of the emerging readers graphic novel series about three friends (a bunny, a worm, and a frog) whose adventures are driven by their very different personalities. Perfect for fans of Narwhal & Jelly and Elephant & Piggie!
Blue, Barry, and Pancakes are best friends! They love epic poetry, wild rodeos, and going on TIME-BENDING adventures!
One night, Blue prepares to read a poem to an audience of friends from around the neighborhood. But just before he takes the stage, he’s frozen with stage fright. The gang decides to travel back in time to borrow a good luck charm from one of Blue’s poet ancestors in the hopes that holding it will make Blue brave. But once Blue gets one charm, he realizes he needs one more. And then another one. And then another one…will Blue ever feel bold enough to take the stage, or will these three friends be looping back in time forever?!
Like all friends, Blue, Barry, and Pancakes can make mistakes... but at the end of the day, they always have each other’s backs. And tops, and sides, and fronts, too!
