Overview

Everyone's favorite neurotic second grader is back, with a collection of the funniest and most touching Alvin Ho books to date. 
 
Allergic to Birthday Parties, Science Projects, and Other Man-made Catastrophes
In the third hilarious book about Alvin Ho, a boy who’s afraid of everything, includes his fear of a birthday party.  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?
 
Allergic to Dead Bodies, Funerals, and Other Fatal Circumstances
In the fourth book in the Alvin Ho series, 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.
 
Lenore Look’s touching, drop-dead-funny book about an Asian American second grader 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.” Alvin Ho perfectly captures the trials and tribulations of boyhood.
