Alvin Ho: Allergic to the Great Wall, the Forbidden Palace, and Other Tourist Attractions
by Look, Lenore
List price: $6.99
Alvin, an Asian American second grader who’s afraid of everything, is taking his fears to a whole new level - or should we say, continent. On a trip to introduce brand-new baby Ho to relatives in China, Alvin’s anxiety is at fever pitch. First there’s the harrowing 16-hour plane ride; then there’s a whole slew of cultural differences to contend with: eating lunch food for breakfast, kung fu lessons, and acupuncture treatment (yikes!). Not to mention the crowds that make it easy for a small boy to get lost.
