When Bertie loses his ball in old man Muckleberg's yard, his friend Isobel bets him a hot fudge sundae that he'll never get it back. But Berite has a plan. He goes to the library and takes out a book called "How To Make Friends in Five Easy Steps." Will Bertie win the bet?

In his collection of three short stories for beginning readers, Bertie, the endearing and ever-determined Hot Fudge Hero, learns through trial and error that making friends, playing the saxophone, and getting a strike at the bowling alley take work and patience--and sometimes a little magic.
