Bobby Ellis-Chan is ready to fight his fears (maybe?).
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.
