Everyone's favorite neurotic second-grader is back, with a complete collection of the funniest and most touching Alvin Ho books to date.
Lenore Look’s touching, drop-dead-funny audiobook about an Asian American second-grader has tons of boy appeal and is great for reluctant readers/listeners. 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/listeners alike, Alvin Ho perfectly captures the trials and tribulations of boyhood.

My 8 year old son, who is almost always reluctant to read or be read to, actually asked to listen to Alvin Ho DAILY! We enjoyed the first narrator a lot more than the one who read books 3 and 4. Nothing bad about the second narrator... we just got hooked on the first one.
I can be summed up in one word. Handsome, intelligent, honest, humble, brave, exciting, fun, kind, trustworthy, sexy! All these words work.
My son and I both love these books. We have listen to them several times which is saying a lot because I hardly ever listen to a hook more than once. Book 4 is particularly hilarious. These books are wonderfully zany and delightful.
I loved these books because they are well written and funny. My kids loved the audio because it was narrated by a kid, and it really makes for a fun listen!
Ok, so I was torn on getting this book because of the mixed reviews I had read on it. I did though, and do not regret it. My children love this neurotic kid. We have been listening to this story every night and they adore it. We joke about our own PDK's (if you read the book you'll understand), and how his decisions affect him. This series has been a great hit. Not one of our favorites, but definitely worth the time.
