Alvin Ho: Allergic to Babies, Burglars, and Other Bumps in the Night

By: Lenore Look
illustrated by: LeUyen Pham

BOOK TALK

Poor Alvin! Misunderstandings abound in Alvin’s latest adventures as he faces daunting life events that test his nerves. Alvin’s mom is expecting a baby and when he shows “sympathetic” pregnancy symptoms, his classmates interpret that he is the one expecting the baby! Then, when his PDK (Personal Disaster Kit) gets usurped by the class and turned into a Personal Donations Kit for hurricane victims, it’s no wonder he has a meltdown by the time he gets home. To add to his anxiety, neighborhood burglaries have his whole family on alert. With his dad away from home, who is going to protect them?  How can Alvin save his family when he can’t even speak in front of other people?  When Alvin comes to his family’s defense and discovers that he really can be brave, he surprises more than just himself.
