Overview
Hank stars the same Hank as in the bestselling Hank Zipzer series, only this time he's in 2nd grade Hank is a kid who 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 math and reading ) In the first book in this new series, Hank's class is putting on a play, and Hank wants the lead part: Aqua Fly. But he freezes in his audition and can only buzz like a fly. His teacher creates a special part for Hank, a silent bookmark. This may seem like an insignificant role, but when his enemy, Nick McKelty, freezes during the performance, it's up to Hank to save the play

The authors of the Hank Zipzer books spotlight their hero as a second grader in this first installment of the Here’s Hank chapter-book series, in which Hank faces his learning disabilities with honesty, tenacity, and humor. When Hank’s teacher instructs her students to read the script for the upcoming class play, Hank worries that he won’t be up to that task or memorizing lines. Though his best friend Frankie helps him prepare, Hank’s audition for the role of comic-book superhero Aqua Fly is a disaster: he can’t recognize any of the words and resorts to buzzing (“I am saying the lines,” he tells Ms. Flowers. “I’m just doing it in fly language”). Worse, Hank’s nemesis lands the part, but Ms. Flowers creates a new character for Hank—a bookmark—which Hank uses to save the play. Amusing dialogue and a typeface designed to accommodate dyslexic readers adroitly target kids with reading difficulties of their own. Garrett’s cheery b&w cartoons bring additional energy to the story, matching that of Hank himself. Due simultaneously: A Short Tale About a Long Dog. Ages 6–8. (Feb.)
