Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375868313, Hardcover)

Here's the fourth book in the hilarious Alvin Ho chapter book series, which is a Kirkus Reviews Best Continuing Series."[E]ngaging and real, often laugh-out-loud funny....," raved Kirkus in a starred review.

Everyone's favorite neurotic second grader is back, in the most touching Alvin Ho book to date. Alvin is facing something truly scary: the idea that someone he loves might die. When Alvin's GungGung loses his best friend, Alvin (gulp) volunteers to go with him to the funeral. Lenore Look and LeUyen Pham touch on a more serious subject in this Alvin book, but it's still filled with the same humor and laugh-out-loud antics fans have come to expect from the series.
