Do you recognize this author? His name is Henry Winkler and he writes some terrific books for children. He more than one series but the books I like best are the Hank Zipzer stories. These books are about a boy who has some interesting experiences in school - learning does not always come easily to him. The characters are funny, the stories entertaining and it is great that it is a series as you can read more and more. We have several of the Hank Zipzer books in the ISS library. Just ask Mrs. Grant if you can't find them.
Do you anything more about Henry Winkler? Hint, ask some older people who know about American TV shows or do a little research - have a "happy day".
