Review: Hank Zipzer: the Night I Flunked my Field Trip by Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver

Synopsis:Hank is thrilled about the "Best Field Trip of the Year"-everyone from Ms. Adolph's class gets to spend the night on an old-fashioned three-mast sailing ship in New York Harbor!  And Hank gets even more excited when the ship's captain chooses him to be the first mate.  But being first mate is not all it's cracked up to be, especially for a crazy captain who takes his job a little too seriously.  The best field trip of the year is becoming the worst night of Hank's life-how's he going to get out of this one? (from the online description)

Review: Once again, I immensely enjoyed the adventures of Hank and his friends. Hank is a very smart kid, but has trouble believing that about himself because of his learning challenges. For someone who doesn't always get that, it helps to read about it, in such a way that is changes my perspective. But the books aren't preachy or an emo; the adventures feel real. I highly recommend these books to everyone!
