Hank Zipzer by Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver
Henry Winkler writes with empathy and understand about Hank Zipzer a boy with learning differences and a spirited imagination. Written at a frenetic pace, that matches Hanks mind, the novel is lively and entertaining. The family dynamic between Hank, his Dad, his Mom and sister Emily is realistic--filled with bickering and love. Hank and his two best friends plan for Halloween--fabulous costumes and a party-- while various adventures keep them well occupied. A fun chapter book series, great for boys and reluctant readers.
