There's nothing scarier than a birthday party in the third book in a hilarious chapter book series that tackles anxiety in a fun, kid-friendly way. Perfect for both beginning and reluctant readers, and fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid

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 pi ata.
- 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?

A humorous and touching series about facing your fears and embracing new experiences--with a truly unforgettable character--from author Lenore Look and New York Times bestselling and Caldecott Honor winning illustrator LeUyen Pham.
