Bobby the Brave (Sometimes)

Bobby the Brave (Sometimes)

by Lisa Yee Illustrated by Dan Santat

Last month, Bobby Ellis-Chan got stuck to a 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...

An asthma attack in public...

Getting chased by a cat with twenty-seven toes...

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.
