Hank Zipzer: The Colossal Camera Calamity

author: Theo Baker

series name:
Hank Zipzer

Hank hates school photos. Something always goes wrong just before the FLASH — a spider lands on his nose, he bends down to tie his shoe, or his “smart-guy” pose ends up looking like a “nose-picker” shot. But this year, Hank is careful to take every possible precaution to ensure he takes a good picture. Unfortunately, between messy art class, a chocolate cake, and school bully McKelty, Hank’s picture-perfect appearance is in jeopardy. He’ll have to do some quick thinking (and quick changing) if he wants to get a good portrait before the photographer packs up. This likable character created by Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver — inspired by Winkler's own childhood — returns for another side-splitting adventure in the popular series set in a dyslexia-friendly font.

Will Hank’s school photo be another disaster on his parents’ shelf of shame? The latest novelization of the TV series based on the best-selling books by Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver. As seen on Universal Kids!

author’s comments:
Henry Winkler is an actor, producer, and director. He is probably most famous for his role as the Fonz in the 1970s television sitcom Happy Days. But if you ask him what he is most proud of, he would say “writing the Hank Zipzer books with my partner, Lin Oliver.” He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Stacey, their three children, and two dogs.
