Description
Here's the first book in the beloved and hilarious Alvin Ho chapter book series, which has been compared to Diary of a Wimpy Kid and is perfect for both beginning and reluctant readers.
Alvin, an Asian American second grader, 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 Lenore Look and "New York Times" bestselling illustrator LeUyen Pham comes a drop-dead-funny and touching series with a truly unforgettable character.
Shares with Diary of a Wimpy Kid the humor that stems from trying to manipulate the world. "Newsday"
Alvin's a winner. "New York Post"
