Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Here's the fourth book in the beloved and hilarious Alvin Ho chapter book series, which has been compared to Diary of a Wimpy Kid and is perfect for beginning and reluctant readers.
Alvin, an Asian American second grader who's afraid of "everything," is facing something truly scary: the idea that someone he loves might die. When Alvin's GungGung loses his best friend, Alvin (gulp) volunteers to go with him to the funeral.
From Lenore Look and "New York Times" bestselling illustrator LeUyen Pham comes a drop-dead-funny and touching series with a truly unforgettable character.
"Shares with Diary of a Wimpy Kid the humor that stems from trying to manipulate the world." --"Newsday"
"Alvin's a winner." --"New York Post"
