"Kids of all stripes will identify with EllRay and his unwittingly hilarious antics."--Booklist Eight-year-old EllRay is down to one-and-a-half best friends, and his little sister points out the obvious: he needs more! So EllRay decides to audition other boys for the part, the way his sister is auditioning for the lead role in her day care's spring play. Now, EllRay has to come up with fun things to do at recess, because when he's the Recess King, everyone will want to be his friend!
