Alvin Ho: Allergic to Camping, Hiking, and Other Natural Disasters
Believing in Henry
you will know some things about me if you have read a book called Alvin Ho: Allergic to Girls, School, and Other Scary Things. But you won’t know all about me, so that is why there is now this second book.
In case you missed it, my name is Alvin Ho. I was born scared and I am still scared. Things that scare me include:
Long words (especially “hippopotomonstro- sesquipedaliophobia,” which means fear of long words).
Punctuation. (Except for exclamation points! Exclamations are fantastic!!!)
The dark (which means I have nyctophobia).
The great outdoors. (What’s so great about it?) Lots of things can happen when you’re outdoors:
The end of the world.
I am scared of many more things than that. But if I put all my scares on one list, it would mean years of therapy for me. And I already go to therapy once a month on account of it’s supposed to help me not be so scared. But my brother Calvin says when you’re born a certain way, that’s the way you’ll always be, so you might as well hug your inner scaredy-cat.
My brother Calvin, he gives good advice.
I am not so good with advice. I can never think of any, except maybe this: When in doubt, always ask, “What would Henry do?” Henry is Henry David Thoreau. He’s a dead author, which is really creepy. But he is also our school hero, which is not so creepy, and he was a lot like me—he had stuff figured out, even when he was little. He was born in Concord, Massachusetts, just like me. And—gulp—he died in Concord too.
