I know.  ANOTHER kids book narration!  It’s OK.  Soon enough I’ll probably be staring down some behemoth non-fiction tome.  So, I’ll enjoy this run of fiction and children’s books while I can.

This one is Alvin Ho: Allergic to Camping, Hiking, and Other Natural Disasters.  From the title alone you can tell the author, Lenore Look, has a great sense of humor.  Illustrations are by LeUyen Pham and have a certain early Alvin & The Chipmunks sensibility to them.  I think it’s a good pairing – author and artist. 

Random House says of this book: 

Alvin Ho is back and his worst fear has come true: he has to go camping. What will he do exposed in the wilderness with bears and darkness and . . . pit toilets? Luckily, he’s got his night-vision goggles and water purifying tablets and super-duper heavy-duty flashlight to keep him safe. And he’s got his dad, too.  

Lenore Look’s touching, drop-dead-funny chapter book about an Asian-American second grader—with illustrations by New York Times bestselling illustrator LeUyen Pham—is perfect for beginning and reluctant readers alike, and has tons of boy appeal.

Recommended for ages 6-10.  Available in hardback now.
