Three multiracial seven-year-old boys with difficult backgrounds befriend a special being, Cubbie Blue. Cubbie and his tiny dog Dot have accidently come to their area from an enchanted part of Antarctica. Even though Cubbie is only three inches tall and therefore appears vulnerable, he has supernatural powers; from highly evolved skills in telepathy, to making himself invisible, to even an uncanny 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. In addition to being flown over cities in a magical bubble and exploring realms near and far, Cubbie and Dot learn the true meaning of friendship and how to solve small and big problems while feeling protected in their scary new environment. In turn the tiny creatures help the boys navigate through their differences and learn about global warming and how to lessen their carbon footprints. The bond between them proves that sometimes unlikely allies are found among beings who seem to have the greatest differences.
