From Sean Taylor, author of Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise, comes a goofy, warm-hearted story about being yourself and finding your own individual rhythm and groove in the world. Alfredo is a frog with a problem - he can't dance! How can he go to Rick's party (with disco lights and groovy dancing) if he doesn't have any fancy moves? So, his best friend Marty (a smooth talking fly) tries to teach him all the groovy ways to dance - the "Cool Boogie Style", the "Speedy Heebie-Jeebies" and the "Silky-Smooth Moving and Grooving". But no matter how hard Marty tries, all he ever does is ... Jump! Jump! Jump! It's just not cool. Or ... is it?
