If you like Scaredy Squirrel, you'll like Alvin Ho-- they're sort of brothers even though they're different species! Alvin is a kid who is "allergic" (afraid) of a LOT of stuff, and doesn't go anywhere without his PDK (Personal Disaster Kit). So a family trip to China is super stressful for him and his long-suffering Dad, but funny for readers. If you're one of those people (like me) who need to start at the beginning, the first Alvin Ho book is called "Alvin Ho: allergic to girls, school and other scary things".
