Inspired by the true life experiences of Henry Winkler, whose undiagnosed dyslexia made him a classic childhood underachiever, the Hank Zipzer series is about the high-spirited and funny adventures of a boy with learning differences.
It's time for PS 87's annual Olympiad, the most anticipated day of the school year! But when Hank Zipzer is chosen as his team's softball pitcher, the pressure is on. Can Hank lead his team to victory, even though he thinks he is the worst athlete in the history of the world?
