Alvin Ho: Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things, by Lenore Look (26 October)


Okay, this book I am getting for my brother’s birthday… in fact, I went out and bought it within a few days of reading it! It’s really cute.

The book is basically a series of stories about all of the things Alvin Ho is scared of… he can’t talk in class (literally, he gets so scared he can’t talk); he can climb up a tree but can’t climb back down; when he hears that his new piano teacher might like to eat children, he runs away screaming. But he’s a good kid at heart, and just wants to make friends, so parts of the book are about Alvin trading away really awesome baseball cards to his bully to gain his friendship and bringing in his dad’s FAVORITE TOY EVER to show and tell (and, of course, breaking it in the process).

There are also delightful illustrations, so you can’t really go wrong there. 🙂
