Here's the third 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 Ho, an Asian American second grader, is afraid of everything. For example, what could possibly be so scary about a birthday party? Let Alvin explain:
? You might be dressed for bowling . . . but everyone else is dressed for swimming.
? You could get mistaken for the piñata.
? You could eat too much cake.
? You could throw up.
So when Alvin receives an invitation to a party?a girl?s party?how will he ever survive?
From Lenore Look and New York Times bestselling illustrator LeUyen Pham comes a drop-dead-funny and touching series with a truly unforgettable character.

Alvin Ho is a shy second-grader who lives in Concord, Massachusetts. Alvin has many fears in life, among them elevators, tunnels, wasabi, and, most of all, speaking up at school--in fact, he's never once uttered a word in class. Episodic chapters take readers along as Alvin makes his way through the school year during which he must face such adventures as piano lessons with an intimidating teacher, encounters with the class bully, and meetings with his psychotherapist. Will any of these experiences help Alvin overcome his nervousness about speaking in public? Occasional brushed artwork illustrations accompany the text of this chapter book.
