A Tale Of Two Tales - Hank Zipzer Book 15 - Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver

A Tale Of Two Tales
Hank Zipzer Book 15
Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver

Penguin Canada
ISBN 9780448443782

In the last year I have read or reread the 17 books in this series. These are wonderful books about a young boy learning to live with his learning difficulties. He has a form of dyslexia. They are written in part from the personal experience of Henry Winkler's own life. They are fun reads, light and easy. Each book in the series is enjoyable, and always entertaining.

In this book, Hank enters his dog Cheerio in the school mascot contest. He teams up with his best friends, Ashley and Frankie, to train the dog before the judging. As usual, Hank messes things up, but not only does he learn his lesson, he also discovers what good friends he has. This is another great book in an excellent series.
