Here’s the third hilarious chapter book in the series about Alvin Ho, a boy who’s afraid of<i>everything.</i>For example, what could possibly be so scary about a birthday party? Let Alvin explain:<br /> You might be dressed for bowling . . . but everyone else is dressed for swimming.<br /> You could get mistaken for the pi ata.<br /> You could eat too much cake.<br /> You could throw up.<br /> So when Alvin receives an invitation to a party-a<i>girl’s</i>party-how will he ever survive?<br /> <br /> Lenore Look’s touching, drop-dead-funny book about an Asian American second grader-with pictures by<i>New York Times</i>bestselling illustrator LeUyen Pham-has tons of boy appeal and is great for reluctant readers. The previous books in the series,<i>Alvin Ho: Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things</i>and<i>Alvin Ho: Allergic to Camping, Hiking, and Other Natural Disasters,</i>have received rave reviews. “Alvin’s a winner,” declares the<i>New York Post,</i>and<i>Newsday</i>says, “The novel . . . shares with<i>Diary of a Wimpy Kid</i>the humor that stems from the hero’s Herculean efforts to manipulate the world around him in his favor, without all the facts at his disposal.” Perfect for beginning and reluctant readers alike,<i>Alvin Ho</i>perfectly captures the trials and tribulations of boyhood.
