Alvin's fears reach outside of his neighborhood, and classroom. He takes his fears onto the school bus and gets in a whole host of trouble. Intermixed in it is Calvin's need to come up with a science project and Alvin wanting to go to birthday party. Funny and hilarious. I love Lenore Looks' imagination. ( )

Funny, realistic school fiction. ( )

Another installment in the paranoid adventures of Alvin Ho, terrified second grader. This has the same humor and appealing illustrations as the previous books. Each book can standalone and this will please fans of the series. Hand these books to kids who like books about funny kids getting into scrapes (Ramona and Clementine come to mind...). ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375863354, Hardcover)

Here's the third book in the hilarious Alvin Ho chapter book series, which is a Kirkus Reviews Best Continuing Series.

Alvin Ho is a boy who’s afraid of everything. For example, what could possibly be so scary about a birthday party? Let Alvin explain:
You might be dressed for bowling . . . but everyone else is dressed for swimming.
You could get mistaken for the piñata.
You could eat too much cake.
You could throw up.
So when Alvin receives an invitation to a party—a girl’s party—how will he ever survive?

Lenore Look’s touching, drop-dead-funny book about an Asian American second grader—with pictures by New York Times bestselling illustrator LeUyen Pham—has tons of boy appeal and is great for reluctant readers. The previous books in the series, Alvin Ho: Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things and Alvin Ho: Allergic to Camping, Hiking, and Other Natural Disasters, have received rave reviews. “Alvin’s a winner,” declares the New York Post, and Newsday says, “The novel . . . shares with Diary of a Wimpy Kid 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, Alvin Ho perfectly captures the trials and tribulations of boyhood.
