Here's the third 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 both beginning and reluctant readers.

Alvin Ho, an Asian American second grader, is afraid of everything. For example, what could possibly be so scary about a birthday party? Let Alvin explain:
- You might be dressed for bowling . . . but everyone else is dressed for swimming.
- You could get mistaken for the piñata.
- You could eat too much cake.
- You could throw up.
So when Alvin receives an invitation to a party--a girl's party--how will he ever survive?

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
