About This Book
It's springtime at the Black Lagoon, which means that flowers are blooming, birds are singing, and Hubie's class is having a dance. Everyone has to go. Everyone has to dance. The boys have to dance…with the girls! Hubie is braced for disaster; after all, the only steps he knows involve stepping on other people's feet. Is there any way he can get out of this? And if he can't, is there any chance it'll actually be fun?
Where — and what — is the Black Lagoon? As fans of this beloved series know, it's the worry-filled alternate reality of Hubie's overactive imagination. That's where things that are new to Hubie become frightening in the most hilarious ways. Filled with puns and monstrously funny illustrations, these books offer a simple but sound lesson: there's really nothing to worry about when it comes to new people and new experiences.
