Goodbye baseball buddies.
Goodbye Gram & her cool puppet shows.
Baker is sure there isn't anything worse than moving. Except being THE NEW KID. Sure, Gram gave him Waldo, a ventriloquist's dummy, for company-- but a puppet, no matter how funny it is, can't take the place of real friends. Baker is bummed.
Until he starts school and discovers that kids in Texas (cowboy hats aside) aren't as different as he thought. And that puppets just might be the key to fitting in.
Let the show begin!
