Hank Zipzer 8: The World's Greatest Underachiever and the Best Worst Summer Ever

By Lin Oliver, Henry Winkler

The eighth book in the New York Times bestselling series about the hilarious adventures of a cheeky, loveable hero.

“Summer” and “school” are two words that Hank Zipzer doesn’t want to hear in the same sentence. Being stuck inside a hot classroom all summer is not his idea of fun – but maybe he’ll learn a cool lesson or two…

  • A vibrant reissue with all new illustrations and fully Anglicized text, including a new title (book previously called Summer School! What Genius Thought That Up?).
  • "Boys who struggle in school will especially appreciate the story, but this enjoyable, fast-paced novel will draw other children as well." - Booklist
