ALVIN HO ALLERGIC TO GIRLS SCHOOL AND OTHER SCARY THINGS

Author(s): LOOK LENORE PHAM LEUYEN

Junior Fiction

ALVIN HO IS an Asian American second grader who is afraid of "everything"--elevators, tunnels, girls, and, most of all, school. He's so afraid of school that, while he's there, he never, "ever, "says a word. But at home he's a very loud superhero named Firecracker Man, a brother to Calvin and Anibelly, and a gentleman-in-training, so he can be just like his dad.
From the author of the ALA Notable Ruby Lu series comes a funny and touching chapter book--perfect for both beginning and reluctant readers-- that introduces a truly unforgettable character.

"A witty glossary and Pham's simple yet expressive line drawings perfectly complement this appealing story about the refreshingly original, endearing Alvin."
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, July 7, 2008:
"Look's . . . intuitive grasp of children's emotions is rivaled only by her flair for comic exaggeration."
