Here’s Hank, a best selling book series written by Henry Winkler, well known actor, producer and director.
Hank is a kid who doesn’t try to be funny but he somehow always makes the kids in his class laugh. He’s pretty bad at memorizing stuff, and spelling is his worst subject. (But so are math and reading!) In the first book of this series, Hank’s class is putting on a play, and Hank wants the lead part, Aqua Fly. But he freezes in his audition and can only buzz like a fly. His teacher creates a special part for Hank, a silent bookmark. This may seem like an insignificant role, but when his enemy Nick McKelty freezes during the performance, it’s up to Hank to save the play!
