Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"When Bobby enters fourth grade, he learns that it's more important than ever to keep his longtime friendship with Holly a secret ('We used to be sorta-best friends, only these days she's my enemy,' he admits to his goldfish). Using humor and relatable situations, Yee (Absolutely, Maybe) shows how the two friends manage to support each other, despite peer pressure. Hurtful accidents — like when Holly lets it slip that she's seen Bobby wearing curlers, and when Bobby's picture of Holly with horns and a mustache appears on the classroom wall — add tension to the already strained relationship. But when Bobby and Holly run against each other for student council rep, their loyalties prove stronger than their grudges. Santat's expressive b&w illustrations evoke the energy of Saturday morning cartoons, and Yee's occasional inclusion of some over-the-top moments (several nervous parents hide in the bushes on the first day of school to see their kids off) only drives the feeling home. The bright prose, concise chapters and gratifying resolutions are likely to please even reluctant readers. Ages 7 — 10. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

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.
