Allergic to Camping, Hiking, and Other Natural Disasters (Alvin Ho)

Allergic to Camping, Hiking, and Other Natural Disasters (Alvin Ho) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alvin Ho is an Asian American second grader who 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 the author of the ALA Notable Ruby Lu series comes a funny and touching chapter book — perfect for both beginning and reluctant readers — that introduces a truly unforgettable character.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

Here's the third book in the hilarious Alvin Ho chapter book series, which is a Kirkus Reviews Best Continuing Series.

Alvin Ho back and his worst fear has come true: he has to go camping. What will he do exposed in the wilderness with bears and darkness and . . . pit toilets? Luckily, he’s got his night-vision goggles and water purifying tablets and super-duper heavy-duty flashlight to keep him safe. And he’s got his dad, too.

Lenore Look’s touching, drop-dead-funny chapter book about an Asian-American second grader—with illustrations by New York Times bestselling illustrator LeUyen Pham—is perfect for beginning and reluctant readers alike, and has tons of boy appeal.
