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. <br>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. <br>From Lenore Look and "New York Times" bestselling illustrator LeUyen Pham comes a drop-dead-funny and touching series with a truly unforgettable character. <br>"Shares with Diary of a Wimpy Kid the humor that stems from trying to manipulate the world." --"Newsday" <br>"Alvin's a winner." --"New York Post"
