About the Book
Have you ever been a little anxious about going to a party? Jim Panzee feels that. Porcupine is having a big party, and according to Jim’s best friend Norman, there will be—gulp—dancing. Jim can DEFINITELY not dance. When he tells his friends, they all try to teach him cool moves—surely that’s the only reason Jim isn’t excited about this party!
Now, their job complete, the other animals sweep Jim along, all the way to the dance floor. Jim is dipped, swayed, and twirled until he can’t take it anymore—he just doesn’t like to dance! When he lets everyone know, he’s met with disbelief…until Water Buffalo reveals that he doesn’t much care to dance, either. As more and more animals have the courage speak their truths, does this mean there’s no place for them at this party?
In this hilarious sequel to GRUMPY MONKEY, kids will learn that it’s okay not to go with the flow if they’re uncomfortable, and that speaking up about what they need can help others speak up, too—and maybe they need the same thing!
