Alvin Ho: Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things by Lenore Look, illustrated by LeUyen Pham

alvin-ho-allergic-to-girls1When Alvin Ho gets scared, he can’t seem to talk … especially at school. Unfortunately, he’s frightened of just about everything, which is really not a good thing when you’re supposed to be a big second-grader! But family and friends – including an eye-patch-wearing feisty little girl named Flea  – help him find his voice, Shakespeare curses and all! Delightful, laugh-out-loud-fun indeed!
