"Halfway Hank" is a book about a boy who literally does everything halfway. He keeps half of his room messy and the other neat. He only counts half his birthdays. So far, his halfway method of doing things is working out for him, but then he finds himself messing up everything at a field day.

Hank needs a solution and fast. This book shows that it's possible to achieve at life without compromising who you are and your own unique way of doing things. If there's one thing Hank isn't, it's a quitter.

"Halfway Hank" features funny illustrations. They match well with the text, with is probably a bit too advanced for younger readers, but would be good for readaloud or for those readers that are a bit more advanced.

"Halfway Hank" is the first picture book by Joe Fallon and Ken Scarborough, with illustrations by Jack E. Davis. Fallon and Scarborough are writers for children's television and have worked for such popular series as "Arthur," "Between the Lions" and "Little Bill." This book is a welcome entry into the field of children's picture books for them.

Halfway Hank is a story about a boy who just does things halfway. As a mother, it's hard to instill in your children to follow through on a job to completion. Going all the way gives a sense of pride.

This is a darling way to teach that lesson. A great little book, created by the the same men who gave us the DOUG and ARTHUR cartoon series. So you know there's quality between these covers.

There is nothing halfway about this charming story. Another favorite with my grandchildren. Who doesn't feel out of step sometimes? Strangely different from the status quo? If you identify, you'll love Halfway Hank who finds a way not only to fit in, but to overcome and enjoy being who he is. Guaranteed hit with children of all ages.

Purchased based on rave review in AARP. Boy were they right! Outstanding book for kids. Great story about being "different" but it's OK. Outstanding illustrations that you will look at for a long time, taking it all in.
