Totally cute. I loved the repetition in the text, and Alvin's many, many lists. I found myself reading parts of the story out-loud to my coworker because they were so silly. I also love how the author created a character who is Asian and doesn't white-wash him. There's enough references to the Asian things in Alvin's life without it being too heavy, or too trite. Really a perfect balance.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid move over for Alvin Ho. Second-grader Alvin is afraid of heights, spiders, and tornados. He loves superheroes, digging holes and his family. He carries around a PDK (personal disaster kit) including instructions for making friends and avoiding bears. Scaredy Squirrel fans will love it. I couldn't stop laughing.
