Overview

Inspired by the true life experiences of Henry Winkler, whose undiagnosed dyslexia made him a classic childhood underachiever, the Hank Zipzer series is about the high-spirited and funny adventures of a boy with learning differences.

It's science project time in Ms. Adolf's class. This is good news and bad news for Hank-he loves science, but he hates the report part. So Hank turns to TV to take his mind off things. But when the program directory scrolls by too quickly for Hank to know what's on, he decides to take apart the cable box to try to slow down the crawl. Great! Now Hank has found the perfect science project! But what he wasn't counting on was his sister's pet iguana laying eighteen eggs in the disassembled cable box. How is Hank going to get out of this one?

Illustrated by Carol Heyer.

Hank Zipzer recently found out he has a learning disability, but he has always known that he isn’t good at school. Friendship on the other hand, is the most important thing. Hank and his two best friends make the Magik 3 and he has booked them a paying gig. In order to get Frankie on board, he promises to tape a televised movie. When his dyslexia causes him to mess up, Hank worries if his best friend will ever forgive him. He uses these tragic events for his science project, but thanks to his sister’s iguana, Hank finds himself in even more of a pickle. Will Hank be able to fix his friendship or will it be just as doomed as his school work? Henry Winkler uses his own experiences growing up with dyslexia to stress the feeling of failure. He uses his famous wit and comedic timing to provide a book that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Readers will want to tag along with Hank and his friends on other crazy adventures!
