Hank Zipzer #15, A Tale of Two Tails by Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver
In this episode of Hank's adventures, Hank is excited to enter his dog Cheerio in his school's mascot contest. The only thing is that Cheerio is not the most well behaved dog and it is difficult to make him listen and to learn new tricks!
Hank's friends, who make up Team Cheerio, even back out after realizing that Cheerio doesn't have much of a chance.
Cheerio even lands himself in jail after causing havoc at the park, which also lands Hank grounded and a stint of community service at the local senior citizen home. Cheerio didn't mean it though, he was just a bit to rambunctious and the police officer on duty felt it necessary to remove Cheerio from the situation to prevent further chaos.
So now it looks like there will be no contest for Cheerio. Or does it?
What I Thought?
As I've mentioned in a previous book review, I absolutely love this series. Hank is just so fun! This story is no different. Hank once again manages to find himself in a predicament. But as always, he manages to find a way to overcome, with the help of some friends and family.
A wonderful read. Recommended for reluctant readers and most independent readers, though this book and series would be a delightful family read aloud.
