Book Summary
The irresistible stars of I Must Have Bobo! return in another everyday adventure in domestic disharmony!

Willy wants to write a storybook starring Bobo—and act out revenge fantasies on Earl—but Earl keeps wrecking the story (hence the desire to act out revenge fantasies!). Quit it, Earl…and stop stealing Bobo!

But sometimes it only takes a small thing to realize that even sworn enemies have something in common. For instance: Bobo and Earl both have very snakey tails! Is that a truce? Don’t count on it.

Activity Adventures:

Crafty Ideas:
Draw a picture of your favorite character having an adventure: Put them on a pirate boat, a jungle, in space... Use your imagination.

Writing Prompts:
Find your favorite toy. Now, pick a place... jungle, ocean on a ship, or any other place you can imaging. Next, think of a terrible bad guy. With all this you have the makings of a story. Now write it!
