Description

Praise for Bobby vs. Girls (Accidentally)

"Those clamoring for fiction with nonwhite or biracial characters in which race is not the focus will welcome nine-year-old Bobby Ellis-Chan.... While Yee remains loyal to the boy point of view for a large portion of the story, both boys and girls will find much to relate to here." -- Horn Book, starred review

"Yee really understands children's thought processes and presents them with tact and good humor. Bobby's dilemmas and adventures, however wild and out of control, remain totally believable. Santat's drawings manage the fine line between cartoon and realism and add dimension to the events. Readers will recognize themselves and learn some gentle lessons about relationships while they are laughing at the antics." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Using humor and relatable situations, Yee shows how the two friends manage to support each other, despite peer pressure. . . . Santat's expressive black and white illustrations evoke the energy of Saturday morning cartoons. . . . The bright prose, concise chapters and gratifying resolutions are likely to please even reluctant readers." -- Publishers Weekly

"Funny and smart dialogue describes perfectly the interaction that makes the battle of the sexes ring true. . . . Kids will identify with much of this interplay since Yee's situations and clever text are so accurate." -- School Library Journal

"Yee, author of Millicent Min, Girl Genius, deftly navigates the dynamics of a late elementary boy/girl friendship; Bobby and Holly are both fully developed characters, and the details of their friendship (and its failures) are both thoughtful and believable. . . . A solid ending and a strong male point of view . . . make this a good selection for the middle-grade set." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
