Format: Paperback
Out of the 16 books available in the Zipzer series, this is now my favourite for a few reasons. First, Hank really begins to accept his learning disability; he also chooses to seek extra help for it. Now true, there is a female interest that draws him to that option but when a young person chooses reading gym over Tae Kwon Do, you know something serious is up. Hank has his first crush and Zoe is in the reading gym also. Hank also tries to keep this change in after-school activities a secret from his dad. But best of all Hank learns how to describe his life with his learning challenges and how it feels to live and struggle with them day in and day out. In learning to admit he has a problem and really working on it, Hank learns how to communicate his struggles and feelings that have been pent up for years.

What is remarkable about this book, and the series as a whole, is the ability by the authors to capture the essence of struggling with a learning disability. I was diagnosed in grade 2 because of a very persistent teacher, but many people are now being diagnosed in college, university and even in the workforce. I know many people who were not diagnosed in school and feel the way Hank does, but they did not know why. These books, even though written for children, are excellent for anyone struggling with learning disabilities, no matter their age. For they will help them see it is not just them and in Hank will see a mirror of some of their own experiences. These books are wonderfully written and are also fun to read. I highly recommend them.

Hank Zipzer is the class clown-- whenever he's around, there's always trouble. This character is funny, and the Hank Zipzer books always end on a good note. (Review written by 7th grade student, Kayla)

My 9 year old son and I have read this whole series and absolutely LOVE it! I recommend this series to any parent to read with their older kids. We started the series when he was almost 8 and now he is 9 and he is rereading the whole series again. Funny and very well written...way to go Fonz!

I bought these for my 9 year old and he loves them. I bought five of them and got the discount and at that price you cant afford not to buy the set. Not sure if these are for girls but for a boy they are a must. easy reading, good story, what else to say.
