PS 87 is having multicultural week, and Ms. Adolf's class is putting on a "Foods from Around the World" luncheon. Hank is thrilled--no reading, no outlining, and no review questions, just cooking! Hank makes enchiladas, and at the luncheon, Ms. Adolf piles her plate with lots of food. But after a few bites, her face turns bright red--one of the dishes is super-spicy! Ms. A ...more

This was a Tween Book Club (ages 8-12) choice & is part of the Hank Zipzer series which is written by Henry Winkler (Fonzie). It's a really nice telling of Hank (or Henry as a boy)who navigates life with dyslexia. Hank is always getting into some type of scrape due to what he calls his "learning disability". This book focused on a multicultural theme and Hank's inability to read fractions causing him to add too much hot sauce to his enchilada recipe. Hank has very supportive family, friends ...more

This book was suggested to me by a friend and I can't believe I have never read any of this series! It is about a boy named Hank Zipzer who has learning disabilities. Hank is chosen to have a Japanese student named Yoshi stay at his apartment. People thought that Hank wouldn't be able to provide Yoshi with a good time, but in the end it turned out that boys are boys and enjoy the same things, regardless of culture. When the boys decide to make enchiladas for "international night", Hank misreads ...more

Another great book, My 9 year old son and I read these together, we laugh the whole way through. I have even caught him say things during the rest of the day like "McKelty Factor" when he doesn't believe something he has heard. My son is being diagnosed with learning difficulties and I think these books has made him realize that he is normal too! thank you!!

This was a really good book its about a 4th grade boy who has a kid named yoshi stay at his house for a school project.In the middle they have to bake enchiladas for the school.And hank doesnt really know how to read so instead of putting a 1/2 cup of chilie powder in he put as much as he think it needs.But the next day is when he brings in the enchiladas and he thinks there really spicey.Then he asks his teacher if she thought the enchiladas looked good and she said yes but she also says she do ...more

This series is always good to read and this specific one is especially so because a Japnese boy was coming to Hank's school and he even stays with his family! I'm not very sure about the word 'Ikeru,' though. Maybe the author tried to translate the word 'cool.' Here again, Hank gets himself into trouble because he cannot say he has a problem reading something honestly. However, he is a lucky boy to have a lot of people to support him. After all he always tells the truth. And I like it very much. ...more

Trying to jeep up with the reading of my 4th grade students.

Hank Zipzer is a forth grade boy with a lot of personality. He isn’t perfect, has interesting pets and cool friends. Children can relate to a character that can’t always do everything right. In this story, Hank has trouble making enchiladas because he doesn’t understand the fractions in the recipe. It is a cute story about a boy who makes a mistake and has to own up to it. We learn about friendship and responsibility while laughing. I can see how elementary school students could fall in love wit ...more

IT'S MULTICULTURAL WEEK AT SCHOOL.SO ALL HANK HAS TO DO IS COOK SOME FOOD AND BRING IT TO SCHOOL. SOUNDS EASY. BUT WHEN HANK IS COOKING HE DOESN'T QUITE KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 1/3 CUP AND 3 CUPS. SO HE PUTS IN ANY OLD AMOUNT. BUT WHEN HE TAKES IT TO SCHOOL MS. ADOLF PILES HER PLATE HIGH WITH THEM. AND AS SOON AS SHE TAKES A BITE HER WHOLE MOUTH IS ON FIRE. NOW SHE IS PROPOSING TO TAKE AWAY THE CLASSES RECESS FOR THE E=WHOLE YEAR IF WHOEVER MADE THEM DOESN'T CONFESS.

my boys would like this book. i thought it was just ok. there was an interesting storyline and i really like that the main character has "learning difficulties" that have to be worked around. there was one character who i thought was over the top and all of the other characters responded to him that way. that part of awful. the way the kids talked to the teacher was unbelievable. all in all, it was a fair read.

This is a fun book, perfect for the reluctant reader in 3rd or 4th grade. Hank is a kid who struggles at school, but is just a great kid - full of humor and great insights. He has trouble reading, and so when he and his friends are making a recipe for enchiladas, he gets mixed up with how to read the amount of chile powder to put in. Oops, those enchiladas turned out just a little too spicy!

Recommended to Katrina by: No one in particular
This is a very funny book, and I enjoyed reading it. I think everyone who likes a good laugh should read this! A kid is making a plate of enchiladas for a school's celebration and he can't read the fraction! He thinks and just may be right he put too much chili powder into the enchiladas, and he doesn't think it'll go very well...

really funny! A littlekid's book like 3rd or fourth grader book! I read it in both grades! there's a lot of them and the good thing is you don't have to read them in order! They made me crack up on the floor!
Laurie
A great series by Henry Winkler about a likeable character with "learning differences." Fun adventures, good friends, easy reading. I will recommend this series to school-aged boys.

I giggled countless times while reading this book. However, a lot of the humor would go right over the heads of my students.
