Overview

It's report card day-the most dreaded day in Hank's school year. And when Hank gets his grades, they're his worst nightmare come true: a D in spelling, a D in reading, a D in math. After school, Hank and his friends go to his mom's deli. His mom is on the prowl-she knows a report card day when she sees one. Hank tries to stall her, but she's going for his backpack. He's cornered. Hank hands the report card off to his friend Frankie, who gives it to his friend Ashley, who gives it to Robert, who puts it into a meat grinder! Hank watches as his Ds are ground into a big salami, and this particular salami is being made for a very important client. How will Hank get out of this one?

Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver continue their knee-slapping Hank Zipzer series with this meaty installment about the fourth-grader, his report card, and a batch of soy salami.

When Ms. Adolf hands Hank the telltale manila envelope -- with a nasty letter to Mr. and Mrs. Zipzer and a report card with three D's -- the kid wonders how he'll ever keep his parents away from it. So when Hank and his pals arrive at his mom's deli, the report card "accidentally" gets dumped into the soy salami that's being cooked up for Mr. Gristediano, New York's top grocery store owner. To keep Mr. G from getting sick, Hank schemes to intercept the salami that's en route to his apartment, but when Cheerio (the Zipzers' dachshund) meets the Gristedianos' Great Dane, love at first sight leads to utter mayhem. Thankfully, though, Mr. G is sympathetic about Hank's confession, and his mom's salami turns out to be a major hit.

Packed with lively turns of events that will keep audiences in stitches, Hank Zipzer #2 is even better than the first! Readers will understand the motivation behind Hank's hijinks -- who wants their parents to see a bad report card? -- and by the end, they'll want to learn more about Hank's ongoing bout with his learning differences. A Zipzer tale that's food for fun.
