    "The Perfect"

    I love Hank Zipzer! An amusing character who tries to the right thing but finds that not everyone can appreciate his unique problem solving methods. A well-written and empathetic tale of a boy with a heart of gold and a brain that learns differently. Henry Winkler's narration is brilliant, a pleasure to listen to. My kids, ages 7 - 11, look forward to more tales of Hank.

    I have been an audible member sinc 2001. Fiction is my preferance. A good narrator can make or break any book

    "Fun for the kids"

    We listen to a lot of books. Henry Winkler did a great job narrating with this series. I hope there will be more. My 7 year old wanted a couldn't get enough.
    I gave it a 4 as an adul because it bothered me how hard Hank was on himself when he has trouble and calling himself stupid all the time was in some ways part of the charm of the books, but on the other a little disheartening as a parent.
    Even so, the books were fun to listen to and i will get the next ones as they come.
    All in all the books were all entertaining and the kids couldn't wait for me to start the car to continue with the story.

    Other books we have enjoyed: Charlie and the chocolate factory. The Indian in the cupboard, the uglified duckie,The Call of the Wild.

    "Outstanding!"

    I enjoyed this book very much, even as an adult with no children. Hank's joys and sorrows, hopes and fears as a fourth grader aren't that much different from ours in the adult world - I could relate to Hank and his friends. The narration was engaging, and particularly enjoyable to me as a groupie for "The Fonz" (Winkler's character from earlier television). I'll be buying more of the Zipzer!
