Read full description of the books:
Actor Henry Winkler and producer Lin Oliver team up for a laugh-out-loud and thoughtful series about a fourth-grader dealing with school life, family, and his own "learning differences."
When Hank Zipzer's teacher assigns an essay on summer vacation, Hank begins sweating bullets -- although he doesn't "have a problem remembering interesting facts," he "just can't do a lot with them." Frustrated by his writing troubles, Hank decides to skip the essay and instead create a working replica of Niagara Falls. But when his masterpiece leads to classroom chaos, Hank lands in two weeks of detention and out of the Magik 3 show. Fortunately, though, Hank's detention monitor is a cool music teacher who spots the trouble and suggests he get tested for learning challenges, and after he talks with Mr. and Mrs. Zipzer, Hank has no trouble getting back into the show.
With a comical character and several hilarious scenes, this first Hank Zipzer installment will surely hook readers while enlightening them about people who learn differently. Winkler and Oliver smartly remember to focus on fun without getting too heavy-handed with the message, and audiences will come away anxious for more. This "world's best underachiever" should have no trouble hitting the heights of success.
