"The main character, Alvin Ho, is really scared of things that aren't even scary at all! At school, he's so scared he can't even talk. But Flea, his brother, Calvin, and his psychotherapist all try to help him. Alvin does do a lot of interesting things in this book. He takes piano lessons, he uses mean Shakespearean words when he gets angry, and he even steals hid dad's Johnny Astro.
My favorite part of the book was when Alvin's dad let him fly his Johnny Astro. I also liked when Pinkie dared Alvin to jump off the top of the house. Alvin made an excuse so he could escape. He's so smart!
My least favorite part of the book was when Alvin Ho's dad got very mad when Alvin stole Johnny Astro. To calm down, he played the piano like crazy! That was funny.
One fact that I learned from this book is that in Concord, Massachusetts where Alvin was born there was a war. It was called the Revolutionary War.
I would recommend this book to seven-year olds, six-year olds and five-year olds because it will definitely be super funny to them. They will also learn that it is hard not to be scared when you're like Alvin Ho but you can try!"
