Bobby vs. Girls (Accidentally)by Lisa Yee
Synopses & Reviews
With the hilarious adventures of Robert Carver Ellis-Chan, Lisa Yee brings her gift for finding the funny (and the truth) in everyday kid situations to chapter-book readers.
Meet Robert Carver Ellis-Chan — a perfectly normal fourth-grader who gets into perfectly crazy situations! Like when he was running for class president and discovered his big sister's panties (static-)clinging to the back of his sweater. Or when he got stuck to the rare sticky (and stinky) Koloff tree on a field trip. . . . Then there's his family — busy mom, ex-pro football player dad, a bossy older sister and an adoring younger one — and best friends (one of whom is a secret, because she's a *girl*). Life may be complicated for Bobby, but it's going to turn out just fine.
Bobby Ellis-Chan has a secret: his best friend is a girl. Holly Harper has always liked to do the same things Bobby does, but now that they're in the fourth grade, things are changing. Illustrations.
