In his last adventure, Bobby Ellis-Chan got stuck to a stinky tree, had underwear attached to his back, and faced down a whole wolfpack of girls. What could be scarier or more humiliating than that?

Oh, how about playing sports with his football-hero dad ...

a cat with 27 toes ...

an asthma attack in public ...

dancing on stage in the school musical ...

And the list goes on! Bobby will have to overcome his fears if he's going to come out on top.

School Library Journal

Gr 3–5—Bobby Ellis-Chan is back in another charming story about an average fourth-grade boy from an unconventional family. His new gym teacher thinks he's super-athletic like his dad, a former star linebacker (he's not); his class is putting on a play (uh-oh); and he hears his father telling his quarterback sister, "He's not like me." Good thing he has close friends (except for awful Jillian Zarr) and gets his first choice for his role in Annie, Sandy. Bobby's classmates, friends, and family ring true; Yee has created believable and endearing characters. There's an excellent chapter in which the class discusses Bobby's asthma. Illustrations are included throughout the book. Readers will devour the fast-paced writing, spot-on dialogue, and heartfelt lessons embedded in the text and empathize with the sometimes-brave Bobby, his worries about his place in his family and at school, and his struggles and successes.—Nicole Waskie, Chenango Forks Elementary, Binghamton, NY
