Look, Lenore. Pham, LeUyen. Alvin Ho- Allergic to Birthday Parties. Schwartz and Wade, 2010. $15.99. Language- G, Violence- G, Sexual Content-G.
A boy named Alvin wants to get an invitation to and Indian party for a boy named Hibson. He wishes upon the stars to get the invitation. About a week later he gets an invitation but not to the right party. He gets an invitation to a girls’ tea party instead. Flea. How will he get out of this mess? I really liked this book. It was really funny and there were a lot of new “phobias” that I had never heard of before. It made a me laugh a lot!
