About the Book



Fourth-grader Bobby is hurt when he hears his father, a former pro-football player, say that the two of them are nothing alike, but he finally summons the courage to talk about it after his public asthma attack proves how right his father is. Illustrations.



Book Synopsis



From Lisa Yee and Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat, a hilarious sequel to Bobby vs. Girls (Accidentally).

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.
