Written and Illustrated by Yehudi Mercado

Chunky is a book about a Jewish/Mexican kid named Yehudi who is overweight. His parents make him try out sports so he will lose weight. His imaginary friend Chunky helps him be as optimistic and funny as ever. Will Yehudi find out what he is good at? I recommend this book to anyone, it is just an amazing book.
