    1. The Zippity Zinger is a very comical book. It has its twists and turns. Hank Zipzer visions himself as a failure and outcast when it comes to things that normal people his age do, including: sports, girls, and academics. In the story, he sees that he is naturally not good at sport, starting with baseball. He realized he didn't have the coordination, skills, and ability to succeed in those sports. He always has hope and always tries his best. But he knows he wont be great because he has problems [...]


    2. Hank Zipzer sees himself as an academic and athletic loser although he's optimistic and cheerful by nature, with parents who help him to achieve as best he can and good friends who accept him as he is. A bratty sister,her spoiled pet iguana, and a school bully keep the book from being too sweet. Hank is dyslexic and generally klutzy but he ends up being a pretty good baseball pitcher and he saves the day by winning the big game competition. I liked a lot of the book--Hank's angst, his superstiti [...]


    3. When Hank Zipzer is forced by necessity to wear his sister’s pink monkey socks, an amazing thing happens, he can pitch baseball perfectly, something he’s not been able to do before. Suddenly, pitching in his school’s baseball Olympic-esque baseball game! But then Hank’s sister Emily starts moaning that she can’t find her lucky monkey socks anywhere. Can Hank still play in the game without the magic socks?This was a cute enough story, but nothing to get excited about. A decent option fo [...]


    4. I told you I enjoyed the first Hank Zipzer I ever read. So I moved on to 'Zippity Zinger.' I was surprised by how similar and yet how much different this book was from the third book, Day of the Iguana. In this sequel, you are introduced to Hankie's bad throw, and the Super Special Lucky Monkey Socks. Papa Pete is a main character in this book, and you will find that in the rest of the series he is quite an encourager. Again, this is a quick read for a quick reader like me but I found it just as [...]


    5. The Zippity ZingerThe writing of this book is funny because the characters are funny. The strengths of this book are that it is suspenseful. There are no weaknesses. I recommend this book to a classmate because it talks about sports. The other reason I would recommend this book to a classmate is because it has action in it. The reason why I would recommend this book to a classmate is because it has softball in it. The book I read is part of a series and I am planning to read all of the books.


    6. A young boy named Hank is going to play baseball with his grandpa. But he has no socks to play with so he grabbed the top pair in the hamper. When he got to the pickers moaned he found out they were his sisters monkey socks. He throws the ball faster than he had ever before. But that was his sister lucky socks and she has the spelling bee to do the same day as his big game. So he has to find out a way to get them and not let her know he took them.


    7. This book is about Hank, as usual. Hank loves baseball however he is not good at it. A series of lucky events happen , that put Hank pitching in his big school game. I always love Winkler books. This book is great and really funny. I recommend this book to everyone. If you want to laugh, read this book


    8. I love Hank. I love them more when Henry Winkler reads them because he does such an excellent job. This was a much needed break in the long, long, LONG list of young adult novels that are a little too heavy.


    9. The story of Hank Zipzer and facing his fears of being a pitcher for his school's Olympiad. You have to love Hank and the humor of Henry Winkler. He is a character all kids can love! Can totally see Hank wearing the red monkey socks!!!


    10. I knew I would not love this book, even though I love the Hank Zipzer series. Any book that has sports in a larger % of the book bores me and my daughter to tears. My O.C.D. prevents me from skipping over any book in a series though.


    11. Who doesnt love Hank Zipzer???This was my absolute most favorite series in 5th grade, next to the Magic Tree House Series of courseI loved them so much, and checked them out so much, that the librarian used to hide them from me so I would check out a different series XD







    12. I enjoyed this book because it is about a boy who thinks he can't pitch for a baseball team, but ends up having an amazing pitch.







    13. My son and I really like this series. This one highlights a great relationship with his grandpa, and the power of the right people believing in you.



    14. I love baseball ,and the Mets.Me and the main caracter are most a like, but He got a creeapy sister like my sister.





    15. My whole family loves the Hank Zipzer books. If you want to REALLY enjoy them, listen to the audiobooks read by the author, Henry Winkler. Hilarious!
