Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Summer Whiting
Hank is not prepared to share his bedroom, but that is exactly what is going to happen when the new baby arrives. He gets ready by putting a clothespin on his nose. He is well aware of what kinds of smells accompany a baby. His parents take notice of his impertinent behavior and decide that his father will take Hank and his sister Emily on a special "pre-baby" ski trip. Their trip is cut short when the baby decides to arrive earlier than planned. The family piles back into their car and heads for home. Instead, they plow directly into a snowstorm. This determined bunch is not about to let a little snow stop them from being present at the new baby's arrival. Unfortunately, they are unable to drive the car through this massive whiteout. The train is the first alternative option. But there are no more seats, and they are forced to bunk with two massive members of the equine family. The horse car only carries them so far. Next up is hitching a ride with acrobats! This family will do whatever it takes to get home as soon as they can. Luckily, an unexpected opportunity allows the family to be where they need to be and right on time. Hank's hilarious wit and charm will keep readers coming back for more. Book 16 of the "Hank Zipzer" series. Reviewer: Summer Whiting
