Starred Review, The Horn Book Magazine, September/October 2009:
“Readers can only hope that Alvin continues to describe in such wonderful detail his many allergic reactions.”
Kirkus Reviews, May 19, 2009
“While Look certainly embellishes at times for comedic effect, she has created in Alvin a character that is as real as he is irascible, and the tender relationships among the members of the Ho family provide a sturdy backbone for all the silliness. Pham’s simple but vibrant line drawings leap off the page. Another triumph for Alvin Ho.”
