Description

An out-of-control pizza party. A lizard-feeding mishap. An overdue school project. What could go wrong? The world’s greatest underachiever is back!

Hank Zipzer has a few tips for hosting an epic pizza party. No parents at home? Check. Pizza and ice cream galore? Accomplished. Friends invited? Check. History homework finished? Er, not quite. And Hank may have forgotten his vow never to pet-sit a lizard — especially a live-locusts-and-mealworms-eating one. Can Hank get his big project done before tomorrow, or will one disaster lead to another? Well, if history is any guide, the answer is pretty obvious. . . . The amiable character originated by Henry Winkler — inspired by his own childhood — returns in a comical adventure set in a font designed to boost readability for kids with dyslexia.
