Alvin is a very shy boy, and he doesn’t talk at school. One of his friends is a girl named Flea. She sometimes speaks for Alvin since he is shy, but she never speaks in the right way. For example, Flea will notice that Alvin is uncomfortable and tell the teacher he needs to go to the bathroom when he really doesn’t. In this book, Alvin’s mother is pregnant, and Alvin is worried the baby will be a girl. Alvin becomes “sympathetically pregnant” as he gets fatter, too. This is why Alvin starts hockey, and when he gets there, he learns that Flea is on his team with a helmet that says “FEARLESS”. Alvin is not a very brave character but he shows that we all go through some rough times. If you keep positive, things will be OK.

This is a great addition to the Alvin Ho series: “Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things”, “Allergic to Camping, Hiking, and Other Natural Disasters”, “Allergic to Birthday Parties, Science Projects, and Other Man-made Catastrophes”, “Allergic to Dead Bodies, Funerals, and Other Fatal Circumstances”. I would recommend this series for ages seven and up.
