Rave Review: Alvin Ho Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things by Lenore Look

Here are some reasons why you should read Alvin Ho:

The first reason is that it takes place in Concord, Massachusetts, which ensures many literary allusions.

The second reason is that it mentions Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka.

The third reason is that Alvin Ho is a charming narrator, and his brother and sister are not unbearable.

The fourth reason is that, how else are you going to see LeUyan Pham's super illustrations?

The fifth reason is to find out what happens to Johnny Astro.

The sixth reason is that it is a funny, touching book that both boys and girls will enjoy!

Thanks for the review. Would you recommend this book for Ben LaB?

I most certainly would! There is a sequel coming out in June--Alvin Ho: Allergic to Camping, Hiking and Other Natural Disasters. Can't wait to read it!
