Title:  Alvin Ho : allergic to camping, hiking, and other natural disasters

Author:  Lenore Look ; illustrated by LeUyen Pham

Collection:  Juvenile Fiction

Alvin Ho: Allergic to Camping, Hiking, and Other Natural Disasters is one of the funniest books I’ve read in years.  This book is one of Lenore Look’s easy chapter books for 2nd graders, but  an adult would enjoy reading this book along with their beginning reader –especially any father who is planning on taking a child camping in the near future.

Alvin Ho and his siblings remind me of many families I’ve known: with Alvin scared of everything, the young Anibelly wise and afraid of nothing, and the oldest Calvin always practicing karate kicks.  Look has written the dad as a strong character in his books; but if they ever make this book into a movie, I would cast Chevy Chase as the dad.

The book is brilliantly illustrated by LeUyen Pham.
