Hank Zipzer #16: Dump Trucks and Dogsleds: I'm on My Way Mom! by Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver
It's almost time for Hank's little brother to arrive, and he is not too happy. Would you, if you were going to have to share your room with a newborn?
Hank's mom sends the rest of the family off on a mini-vacation to go skiing while she finishes up preparations. So off the family goes...skiing in Vermont!
On their first run down the mountain, Mrs. Zipzer calls and she's having the baby! The family needs to return home NOW! But a horrible snowstorm is going on and they cannot drive home. What to do?
It will definitely be an adventure!!
What I Thought:
Another great installment in the Hank Zipzer series! I enjoyed that this book took place out of the school setting and concentrated more on his family than his friends!
Hank and his family had a crazy adventure getting home when the roads become impassable, from stowing away on a train, hitching a ride with a Chinese circus act, bumming a ride from a dog sled, and hanging off the back of a dump truck!
Fans of Hank Zipzer will not be disappointed!
