Have you ever meet a boy or read about a boy who is almost afraid of EVERYTHING! Well if you read this book you will have . Well Alvin Ho. is a boy who is afraid of everything and is half …………… FIRECRACKER MAN! One of Alvin’s favorite things to do is dig holes and carve sicks to dig holes with. Alvin has a brother, and a sister their names are Anibelly and Calvin. Alvin is an asian american. Alvin loves to play ball (trow baseballs) with his gunggung. But on the first day of school everything changed he could talk on the bus but not at school. Alvin’s favorite things to do at school is read, play at recess, and show (really show and tell but Alvin can not tell). Alvin’s father likes “curse” (not really) and Alvin dose also.
