How often does the fifth book in a series top all others.
Do you know Alvin Ho? Because you should. It's particularly awesome that his name is Alvin Ho, and it is also particularly awesome that his brother's name is Calvin. How many times will I say awesome on this blog? I don't know. Please don't count. You have to read the description below.
Ages 7 and up.
Alvin, an Asian American second grader who's afraid of everything, has started to notice his mother getting bigger . . . and bigger. Alvin's sure it's all the mochi cakes she's been eating, but it turns out she's pregnant! There are lots of scary things about babies, as everybody knows. There's learning CPR for the newborn and changing diapers (no way). But the scariest thing of all is the fact that the baby could be a GIRL. As a result of the stress, Alvin puts on a few pounds and—in one hilarious misunderstanding—worries that he might actually be pregnant, too!
