Handler instills a love of diversity in this adorable fantastical tale which is getting rave reviews from parents, kids and teachers alike. In this story, three multiracial seven-year-old boys with different backgrounds befriend an intelligent visitor from an enchanted part of Antarctica, tiny Cubbie Blue and his minuscule dog Dot, who have accidentally landed in their hometown. Though Cubbie is only three inches tall and appears vulnerable, he has supernatural powers. He can read minds, become invisible and has the unique ability to only see things in a positive light.
Throughout the series, this new friendship leads to important discoveries for both the boys and Cubbie. Together they fly over cities in a magical bubble and explore realms near and far. Cubbie and Dot learn the true meaning of friendship and how to solve problems while feeling protected in their scary new world. The bond between these friends proves that sometimes unlikely allies are found in beings who seem to have the greatest differences.
