      Fun! My first attempt at Hank Zipzer. Now I can confidently recommend this series. Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver are the authors. (Yes, that Henry Winkler!) Hank is excited about the family road trip but the homework packet that is accompanying him has proved challenging. Here is a sample of the writing in the story that cracked me up: "While Frankie got dressed, I strolled into the bathroom and found all the little bottles of free stuff they give in hotels. I love those little bottles. I jumped [...]

      This was a funny book! This book just pulled me in on the first page. This book is about the Zipzers family on a road trip to the crossword puzzle tournament. Everyone in the family except for the parents liked the idea. The kids, (Hank and Emily) didn't like the idea at all. But his mom said that there is a rollercoaster's park there. So he called Frankie if he can come to it, and said yes! THEY WERE SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!They went to the last day of school before winter break. The day [...]

      All the Hank Zipzer books I find to be hilarious and exciting. If you are more of an adventure person, I suggest you pick up another series, because Hank rarely ever leaves his school (to his dismay) or bed. However, in Barfing in the Backseat: How I Survived My Family Road Trip, there is more physical adventure (walking-to, driving-to) than in the other Hank Zipzer books. There's standing up in a Crossword Competition, there's calling a Frenchman for a homework packet, there's even the walking, [...]

      This is the first of this series that I have read. Loved it! Very clever writing. Loved the whole premise of the 2 boys having major problems with lost homework and then having to deal with the consequences of lying about it.I thought it had great humour, made me laugh out loud. It had a very easy rhythm to it. Read it in one hit.I also loved how this boy (Hank) has a learning problem and how he explains it in words kids will relate to Good points of interest for boys, with the mention of the hu [...]

      Hilarious! I love this series, especially for my lower-level readers. Hank's Zipzer is great: his candidness about his learning differences always makes him a sympathetic character, and his ability to see the humor in any situation makes him a fun first-person narrator! In addition, family road-trips are always a recipe for both disaster and comedy :-) .cially when your little sister insists on bringing her iguana along for the ride, you stay overnight at a honeybee farm, and your final destinat [...]

      I read this book aloud to my 9 year old son, and we both enjoyed it. There were many parts that we both laughed out loud. I have long been a fan of Henry Wrinkler as an actor; now I am a fan of Henry Wrinkler as a children's author. This series is wonderful for boys, especially if they are reluctant readers. This will not be the only book in this series for my son and I. We have already started another one!

      I think Hank gonna get in big trouble because he left his homwork in the hotel. I think because of all the eximent and the fun he froget his packet.Because he was so exited about going on that roller coaster so he frogot his packet.This makes me think that Hank in that time he wasn't caring about his homework because he would'v not left it in the hotel the last place.I think he should ow Frankie Towsend Alot because he gave up his basket ball game his money and hi vacation to help Hank.

      Very good. Hank is going on a road trip, wich he thinks will be the best few days of his life. But things change when he gets a 900 page homework packet from his teacher, Ms. Adlof. On top of that, if he doesn't complete it by the time they get to Roller Coaster Kingdom, wich is his choise, no rides for him, and he has to go to the National Crossword Puzzle Chamionship. Plus, as the name suggests, he nearly barfs in the backseat.

      Hank Zipzer try's to stay positive on this road trip that his dad is taking him on but he just can't seem to get the nice words out of his mouth just like me when I have nothing nice to say. I liked this book a lot. When they wear getting ready to leave to go on the road trip that was my favorite part because Hank didn't want to go but his dad was so existed about going. And sometimes I really don't want to go places but people think I do so they make me go anyways.

      Different from the books before of this series, I couldn't tell where the story was heading. I even got irritated with Hank, which I rarely did. And then came the real good twist at the end. After all I liked it very much. I didn't like Hank's father much because he seems hot to understand his son's difficulties well, but in this book we could see Hank and his father made peace and became good friends.

      Another great book in the Hank Zipzer series by Henry Winkler. Hank finds himself on a family road trip but he can't enjoy himself completely because his dreaded teacher actually gave him homework to do on the trip! A enjoyable read.

      Ths was my favorite of the Hank Zipzer series, because he wants really badly to go to an amusement park but he has to do a homework packet first, which is really hard to do. In the end, he ends up having to go to his dad's crossword puzzle tournament

      Hank Zipzer remains sympathetic & likable, even when he does things he shouldn't.
