9780385386005: Alvin Ho: Allergic to Babies, Burglars, and Other Bumps in the Night

Here is the fifth book in the beloved and hilarious Alvin Ho chapter book series, which has been compared to Diary of a Wimpy Kid and is perfect for beginning and reluctant readers.

Alvin, an Asian American second grader who's afraid of everything, has started to notice his mother getting bigger . . . and bigger. Alvin's sure it's all the mochi cakes she's been eating, but it turns out she's pregnant! There are lots of scary things about babies, as everybody knows. There's learning CPR for the newborn and changing diapers (no way). But the scariest thing of all is the fact that the baby could be a GIRL. As a result of the stress, Alvin puts on a few pounds and—in one hilarious misunderstanding—worries that he might actually be pregnant, too!

From Lenore Look and New York Times bestselling illustrator LeUyen Pham comes a drop-dead-funny and touching series with a truly unforgettable character.

“Shares with Diary of a Wimpy Kid the humor that stems from trying to manipulate the world.” —Newsday

“Alvin’s a winner.” —New York Post

From Booklist:

In the previous installment (Alvin Ho: Allergic to Dead Bodies, Funerals, and Other Fatal Circumstances, 2011), Alvin conquered death. This time he must contend with new life. Mrs. Ho is expecting and Alvin is caught off guard. What’s worse, he seems to be suffering a sympathic pregnancy: he eats all the time, his Firecracker Man costume fits snuggly across his belly, he is often low on energy, and it appears the condition is contagious to other boys in his class. To be fair, they only binge eat ice cream, because “eating frequently is the best way to have a well nourished baby.” In addition to baby drama, Alvin must also help protect the family from a rash of burglaries in Concord (his beloved but scary hometown) while his father is away on business, take hockey lessons, and help earthquake victims in Haiti. Look and Pham again provide a lively reading experience, depicting Alvin and his continued anxiety issues in a relatable, sympathetic, and humorous way. Grades 2-4. --Courtney Jones
