Alvin Ho: Allergic to Dead Bodies, Funerals, and Other Fatal Circumstances


Alvin Ho: Allergic to Dead Bodies, Funerals, and Other Fatal Circumstances Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[E]ngaging and real, often laugh-out-loud funny.... A fresh entry in what is overall an exceedingly enjoyable series," raved Kirkus Reviews in a starred review.

Everyone's favorite neurotic second grader is back, in the most touching Alvin Ho book to date. In this 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.

From the Hardcover edition.
