Hank Zipzer 9: The World's Greatest Underachiever Is the Ping-Pong Wizard

By Lin Oliver, Henry Winkler

The ninth book in the New York Times bestselling series about the hilarious adventures of a cheeky, loveable hero. Also available as eBook.

This year all the kids at Hank's school have to pick a favourite sport and specialize in it. Hank can’t run, he can’t catch and he can’t throw. Luckily, he's a whizz at ping-pong. That's a sport, right?

  • A vibrant reissue with all new illustrations and fully Anglicized text, including a new title (book previously called My Secret Life as a Ping-Pong Wizard).
  • "Boys who struggle in school will especially appreciate the story, but this enjoyable, fast-paced novel will draw other children as well." - Booklist
