      Really liked this book as well Hank putting his report card where he did made me laugh because it sounds like something i would have done in middle school There were a few parts in this one where i was laughing out loud again On to the third oneAnother side note not a huge fan of the character Nick McKelty but I guess we all know one like him.

    3. Steve says:
      Although this is for a fourth grade and up audience, it s quite a nice story for young readers It s set in New York, down at street level It features a main character who is discovering he has some learning challenges, which could be very helpful and engaging for students who may have some trouble in school.

    4. Kaelyn Grant says:
      Wow, this kid, seems like a true person I love the bits of gaining knowledge about learning challenges, and how imaginative a kid can be.

      I liked this book better than the first and I think I liked listening to it rather than reading it I don t really enjoy the series but I might listen to one to see if Hank gets help for his learning challenges.Likes Hank Zipzer doesn t blame his friends or begrudge them their strengths Ashley and Franky are good supportive friends, but they should stop some of his craziness Papa Pete is the understanding supportive adult figure, but again he should be the voice of reason Listening to Henry Wink [...]

      I Got a D in SalamiThe writing of this book is funny because what they do is funny The strengths of this book are that it is not boring and it keeps you wanting to read There are no weaknesses in the book I would recommend this book to a classmate because the book is short and easy to read I would also reccomend this book to a classmate because there are some parts in the book that have suspense in it The reason why I would recommend this book to a classmate is because it teaches you life lesso [...]

      If you have the chance to listen to the audio, I recommend it Winkler does an excellent job with all the voices and accents of NYC This second book in the Hank Zipzer series is hysterical, adventurous, and has a lot of heart It brings the challenges of learning differences front and center in an honest, human, and, and realistic way Testing for learning differences is time consuming and then finding ways to adapt to ones learning style can take time and patience We talk about this a lot at schoo [...]

      It s the worse day in school for Hank It s Report Card Day And Hanks mom knows it too So as soon as she sees Hank she asks for it But he doesn t want his mom to see all the D s he got So instead he hands it off to Frankie who slips it to Ashlie who gives it to Robert who tosses it in a meat grinder It also so just happens that that particular batch of meat is being delivered to one of his moms important clients If Hank doesn t get that batch of meat, someone than him is going to be in trouble.

      My review for Book 1, still apropo for this book Fell in love with these books after hearing Henry Winkler that s right, The Fonz himself talk about and read from this book at the L.A Times Book Festival in 2003 He talked of how amazed he was to find himself a published author despite his life long struggle with severe dyslexia He said he put a lot of himself into these books and it really shows these books have a real heart to them Wonderful, wonderful juvenile fiction even for us big kids

    19. Michelle Crunkleton-Clark says:
      This was on my kids Reading Olympics list Even though it was a super easy read for my 12yo daughter, she still enjoyed it She admitted she never would have picked it up had it not been on the list It became an important book for her however because it gave her an understanding about kids who might have a hard time learning She referenced the book so many times after she read it, that I felt I had to read it too I don t think I got quite as much out of it as she did, but I did enjoy it.Great for [...]

      When my ex boyfriend was in college, Henry Winkler came to talk to some class of his and handed out copies of his new book signed This was the book My ex gave it to me and years later, well after we broke up, I read it mostly because I doubted I d want to keep it and I wanted shelf space I was write I did not want to keep it Totally unbelievable plot, and not fantastic enough to suspend belief.

    23. James says:
      When purchasing this book, I assumed it was going to be hilarious just looking at the title, I was wrong This book to me felt like it went on and on and on just going over the same thing again the depressed dad This book bored me to the point that I didn t even remember what the book was about if anyone came up to me and asked me if they should borrow the book, I would say NO, it doesn t have any meaning, it has a terrible story and the book repeats itself.

    24. 10-11 Noah says:
      A young boy named Hank Zipzer got a D in three classes and is to ashamed to tell his parents One day at the deli he dropped it in the grinder But the meat they where making was going to the president of the company So he had to make a evolve skim to get it back before he eats it and gets sick But he got caught and he had to call his parents and tell them what he did but the man thought he was dyslexic So he got tested and it turns out he was.

    25. Lucia says:
      This was a treat to listen to in the car with The Fonze reading the book himself Poor Hank isn t as out there as Joey Pigza, but he does some crazy stuff He is always trying to find ways to do better in school in spite of what seems like lack of support from his mean teacher and cranky, halibot eating principal The Hank Zipzer books are a great reading outlet for reluctant readers who like to stick to a format and good for boys like Joey Pigza and the Time Warp Trio.Enjoy

    26. Victor B. says:
      This book is very funny and interesting even though I can t connect to it I think the writing was effective The strengths of this book are its craziness and wild things that happened The only weakness is I don t connect to this book like I used to I would recommend this book to a classmate because some of my friends like jokes This book is part of a series, but I won t continue it.

    27. Mike says:
      Sam and I just finished reading this one We can t wait to get book 3 Sam really enjoyed how he figured out what the title meant I won t spoil it, but it literally happens If you know any kid that has a hard time with school this series would be great Again, it keeps reminding me as a teacher and parent to treat all kids equitably.

    28. Cecilia Rodriguez says:
      The story is humorously narrated by Hank.Hank knows he has some problems with his schoolwork When he is sent home with a report card that has several D he attempts to hide the letter and the report card in a mixture of salami.The story is a fun way to bring up the topic of Learning Disabilities.

    29. Emily says:
      This book teaches a good lesson about telling lies and how they only grow after being told It also does a good job explaining why it s important to try to fix your mistakes when a lie has been told and although there are sometimes consequences for that mistake, being truthworthy is important.
