Young Reader Reaction: I like this series, and this is another good Hank Zipper story. It just isn't my favorite. I would recommend all second graders and up to read this book especially the fourth graders since they can relate to it. This book is very funny because it shows how adults are always one step ahead of kids.

Pros: Kids (and parents) will laugh out loud at Hanks' life and adventures. You'll keep turning the page just to see how Hank's ideas pan out.

I think that Hank is underestimating himself, and that he shouldn't believe in what bullies say.

At first the story seemed a little bit slow to roll compared to the other Hank Zipzer ones I had read. But it had a really nice ending. We learned that Ms Adolf can smile a good smile, too! I'm always curious about Ms Adolf-is she really such a nightmare teacher or will turn out to be a nice one after all. And I must say what nice friends Hank has!

Henry Winkler should stick to being the Fonz. This was boring and filled with excess verbiage. It was trying too hard to be funny, and just didn't do it for me. However, to be fair, I will say that one of my 4th graders read a Hank Zipzer book (I Got a D in Salami) and LOVED it. I guess you just have to be a 4th grade boy...

Another in the Hank Zipzer series which shows the life of a young boy who struggles with school but still has a great attitude for life. Although this isn't my favorite in the series, it still shows the humor and creativity that Hank seems to just have naturally. Still a great series for any reader.

I read this book for the Battle of the Books in 4th grade and I remember enjoying it a lot. I don't exactly remember what it was about but I do remember that I liked it.

Mildly funny, if you like that sort of thing. Probably hilarious if you're eight or ten, but I haven't been for awhile.
