Quotes & Awards

  • Starred Review, The Horn Book Magazine, September/October 2009:
    "Readers can only hope that Alvin continues to describe in such wonderful detail his many allergic reactions."
  • Kirkus Reviews, May 19, 2009
    "While Look certainly embellishes at times for comedic effect, she has created in Alvin a character that is as real as he is irascible, and the tender relationships among the members of the Ho family provide a sturdy backbone for all the silliness. Pham’s simple but vibrant line drawings leap off the page. Another triumph for Alvin Ho."

    " It's cute, but not as cute as the first Alvin Ho book.

    It is extremely refreshing to read a chapter book with an Asian-American boy who is totally modern, which is why we started this series in the first place.

    I am looking forward to Ruby Lu. "
