Enter the Underground Throwdown (Blue, Barry & Pancakes #4)

by Jason (Author)

Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

The fourth volume of the children's series of friendship stories for emerging readers, featuring three friends (a bunny, a worm, and a frog) who get into conflicts and adventures driven by their very different personalities.

Blue, Barry, and Pancakes are best friends! They love roller hooping, free ice cream, and going on BIG adventures!

One day, Barry and Pancakes want to go to the beach. When they go to grab Blue though, they discover that he's already gone. He's searching for a legendary stone buried deep underground, and didn't invite his best friends to join him! Feeling hurt, Barry and Pancakes decide that they're going to beat Blue to the treasure, but they are totally unprepared for the DANGER that awaits them in the cave of the Jelly Gem!

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!

Feel all of the warm, fuzzy, friendship feelings in the latest installment of Dan & Jason's graphic novel series.
