Children's favorite grown-ups are often the ones who haven't forgotten what it's like to be a kid. Some of the best children's authors are those who can read their young subjects' thoughts. Beverly Cleary comes to mind with her kindergartner Ramona Quimby. So does Jeff Kinney with his "wimpy" middle-schooler Greg Heffley. And now Lenore Look brings us Alvin Ho, whom she introduced in the first book as "Allergic to Girls, School and Other Scary Things" and who is now "Allergic to Camping, Hiking and Other Natural Disasters." Alvin Ho is directed at 6- to 10-year-olds. While my 14- and 11-year-old sons are far past the easy-reading stage, they each spent part of a camping afternoon chuckling at hapless Alvin, who in an early chapter dreams he meets a young Henry David Thoreau, who convinces Alvin to try to hatch a nest of bird eggs. (And any second-grader can tell you what happens when you sit on eggs.) I needed somebody to keep me alert while driving home from the camping trip, so I asked my 14-year-old to read aloud. I found myself laughing even harder than the boys did at Alvin's predicaments. Alvin's father suggests - horrors! - that they take a camping trip. Suddenly Alvin, already a bundle of childhood nerves, has a whole new list of things to worry about: pit toilets, freak blizzards, flash floods, meteorites. In short: acts of God. "Millions die at once in an act of God!" Alvin tells his dad. "It's the worst way to go. We could be in line forever!" "In line?" asks his dad. "To get into heaven," Alvin says. "You're not going to heaven," says Alvin's dad. "You're only going camping." Alvin's Uncle Dennis gives him some reassurances. One: Used as earplugs, marshmallows help you get a good night's sleep. Two: If you run out of food, you can always eat maggots. Three: Wear a Batman ring. Will Alvin survive his camping trip? Will the Batman ring protect the campers from thunderstorms? Will the children be able to free their dad from the snare Alvin sets in the woods? Author Look's ability to empathize with Alvin, stuck between a 9-year-old brother who's not afraid of anything and a 4-year-old sister who gets her way by charming the dickens out of their Chinese grandfather, will tickle the funnybone in almost any child. It's also a delightful read for former kids who remember their own childhood anxieties.
