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

Alvin Ho is a boy who’s 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?

Lenore Look’s touching, drop-dead-funny book about an Asian American second grader—with pictures by New York Times bestselling illustrator LeUyen Pham—has tons of boy appeal and is great for reluctant readers. The previous books in the series, Alvin Ho: Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things and Alvin Ho: Allergic to Camping, Hiking, and Other Natural Disasters, have received rave reviews. “Alvin’s a winner,” declares the New York Post, and Newsday says, “The novel . . . shares with Diary of a Wimpy Kid the humor that stems from the hero’s Herculean efforts to manipulate the world around him in his favor, without all the facts at his disposal.” Perfect for beginning and reluctant readers alike, Alvin Ho perfectly captures the trials and tribulations of boyhood.

    " My kids and I listened to a few other Alvin Ho books before this one on CD. They were all delightful. We all enjoy Alvin Ho. "

    " The third in this series is just as great as the first two. I love Alvin and his family! This is a great series to recommend to kids who are struggling with their own fears, or who just like really funny books. "

    " Alvin is adorable (I think I like him even more than my 8 year old does) and the pictures really make the book. "
