Bobby vs. Girls (Accidentally) by Lisa Yee, illustrated by Dan Santat
Bobby is a fourth grader who is having a little rough patch with his girl classmates. His best friend changed over the summer and is acting much more like a girl than he remembers. Did I mention his best friend is a girl which means that they can't be friends at school because that would be just wrong! Bobby finds himself accidentally offending the girls starting somewhat of a boy vs. girl war.
What I Thought:
This is a super fun book that I had a blast reading. Bobby is a neat character...he is the only son of a former famous professional football player and his dad is a stay at home dad who does his best. Bobby has asthma and allergies and can't do a lot of things that other kids do, like have a pet with fur. He is a kind and sweet kid who just likes to have fun!
I think a lot of kids will relate with Bobby and enjoy this novel.
Highly recommended, especially for the older elementary set.
