Zombelina loves to dance, and going to school is just as fun She leaps on the bus and twirls down the aisle. In class she raises her hand high in the air, even if sometimes it falls under her chair.

When it's time for show-and-tell, Zombelina can't wait to share her hip-hop moves, but a new student named Morty has his own case of stage fright . . . something Zombelina knows how to fix. She has the perfect idea to make Morty feel welcome: a big rockin' dance party

After all, friends who dance together, stay together
