School Library Journal - 04/01/2023 Gr 2–4—In this fifth series entry, best friends and housemates Blue (a worm), Barry (a green frog), and Pancakes (a large yellow rabbit) prepare for Blue to give a grand poetry reading in their yard, when he suddenly develops a bout of stage fright. Using Barry's recently invented time machine helmets, the trio goes back in time to retrieve lucky items from Blue's ancestors to help him feel more confident. Shenanigans ensue. Readers who love expressive animal characters, boldly colored art, and wacky adventures will not be disappointed. Important lessons involving luck, performance anxiety, and the importance of good friends tie the story together. VERDICT Readers both new and familiar to the series will enjoy this latest volume. - Copyright 2023 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
