Here's the sixth 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 who's afraid of everything, is taking his fears to a whole new level'or should we say, continent. On a trip to introduce brand-new baby Ho to relatives in China, Alvin's anxiety is at fever pitch. First there's the harrowing 16-hour plane ride; then there's a whole slew of cultural differences to contend with: eating lunch food for breakfast, kung fu lessons, and acupuncture treatment (yikes!). Not to mention the crowds that make it easy for a small boy to get lost. 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.

If you like Scaredy Squirrel, you'll like Alvin Ho-- they're sort of brothers even though they're different species! Alvin is a kid who is "allergic" (afraid) of a LOT of stuff, and doesn't go anywhere without his PDK (Personal Disaster Kit). So a family trip to China is super stressful for him and his long-suffering Dad, but funny for readers. If you're one of those people (like me) who need to start at the beginning, the first Alvin Ho book is called "Alvin Ho: allergic to girls, school and other scary things".
