A new series about a younger Hank Zipzer - star of CBBC - from Henry "the Fonz" Winkler and Lin Oliver.
The second book in a new series about a younger Hank Zipzer - star of CBBC - from Henry "the Fonz" Winkler and Lin Oliver. Perfect for newly independent and reluctant readers, the book has black and white illustrations, short chapters and a font developed specifically for dyslexic readers. Henry "Hank" Zipzer doesn't try to be funny, but he somehow always makes the kids in his class laugh. He's pretty bad at memorizing stuff, and spelling is his worst subject. (But so are maths and reading!) Hank has finally persuaded his dad to get the family a dog, and Hank couldn't be more excited! Mesmerized by a little sausage dog chasing his tail (making him look like a Cheerio) at the animal shelter, Hank declares him to be the new Zipzer dog. But can Hank prove that he's a responsible pet owner or will Cheerio have to go?
Henry Winkler is an actor, producer and director. He is probably most famous for his role as The Fonz in the 1970s' US television sitcom Happy Days. But if you ask him what he is most proud of, he would say, "Writing the Hank Zipzer books with my partner, Lin Oliver." He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Stacey, their three children and two dogs. Lin Oliver is a writer and producer of movies, books and television programmes for children. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Alan, and their three children.
