Calvin Coconut: Kung Fooey

By: Graham Salisbury
illustrated by: Jacqueline Rogers

BOOK TALK

 

When new student, Benny Obi, shows up in Calvin’s fourth grade class, everyone thinks he’s a little strange. He dresses differently, has different ideas, brags about knowing Kung Fu and eats bugs.  Hassled by the school bully, everyone soon finds out that Benny does not really know Kung Fu.  It’s only when Benny doesn’t return to school that Calvin realizes he lost an opportunity to make an interesting new friend.
