Review: Hank Zipzer: Holy Enchilada! by Henry Winkler

Synopsis:  Hank Zipzer’s class is celebrating the visit of the Principal of their sister school in Japan by having a multicultural luncheon. And Hank gets chosen o host the principal’ son in his home – who happens to be the coolest boy anyone has ever met! Hank and his friends agree to make enchiladas for the luncheon. Hank is on top of the world until a small mistake in recipe spells disaster! Will Hank be able to save the day? Or will everyone in P87 hate him forever….
Review: I adore the Hank Zipzer books. I laughed out loud at every one, but they aren’t flippant books. Hank struggles with learning disabilities, in a real and relatable way. Surrounded by a crazy cast of secondary characters, Hank struggles through with a little humor and imagination – and a bunch of love for those around him. I highly recommend for children age 5-13, and for anyone who wants a good quick read that will make you laugh.
