This laugh-out-loud funny sequel to breakout hit Chez Bob introduces a cutthroat competition between everyone's favorite birdseed restauranteur and his pizza-delivery rival!

Look out, Bob—there's a new restaurant in town. Meet Ryan! This guy’s got it all: The hippest hair! The coolest bike tricks! The wildest parties! And most awesome of all…PIZZA FOR BIRDS! Can Bob—the big cheese at the best birdseed restaurant around—cook up a recipe for disaster that’ll stir the pot and push his rival to go south?

In this parody of the phenomenon of online bullying, Bob’s relatable flaws of jealousy, impulsive reactivity, and fear of abandonment offer a valuable lesson which will resonate in a world where lies and misinformation abound on the internet. 


  • "A high-energy introduction to ethical internet use."
    Kirkus Reviews
  • "Skilled use of color and perspective throughout effectively conveys mood and plays up the overall silliness.... This satisfying second course will be a crowd pleaser."
    Horn Book
  • Praise for Chez Bob:

    "Chez Bob is beyond glorious. Seriously: It’s a perfect book." —Sandra Boynton

    * "Shea puts a fresh spin on the tale of a villain reformed by spoofing contemporary rhetoric around the communal good: as a "positive role model for the birds I'm going to eat," Bob even coaches a local bird basketball team. Shea's always-striking art has a marvelous lightness here, thanks to the bevy of bird characters and a cheery tropical palette, making for a book that's funny a lovely to look at, too." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

    * "Readers will laugh at this funny story... kids will cheer for the heartwarming ending. Appropriately droll illustrations perfectly match the lively shenanigans and depict Bob with a toothy, expressive mug. This is one to devour." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

    * “Delightfully mischievous…. Terrifically funny and surprisingly sweet. The splashy illustrations are distinctive and detailed, perfectly suiting the silly tone. Visit Chez Bob with no reservations.” —Booklist, starred review

    * "A fabulously fun read-aloud…Readers will come away giggling but will also retain a renewed sense of the importance of kindness and belonging. Laugh-out-loud funny, sweet, and a surefire hit for story time." —School Library Journal, starred review

    “Playful details in the art, varied perspectives, and effective page-turns enhance the story’s humor…. From its punny, self-referential appetizer of a title (flip the author’s name) to its sweet ending, Chez Bob offers a story-time feast.”  —Horn Book

    "The deadpan humor will be appreciated even by older siblings who just might be glancing over younger shoulders." —BCCB

    "One of the funniest picture books of the year." —Parents Magazine

    “Slyly funny in both story and illustration.” —The Boston Globe
