Meet actor, director and producer Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver, co-authors of HERE'S HANK (ages 6-8), a new prequel series to the popular and bestselling Hank Zipzer books. HERE'S HANK chronicles the adventures of Hank, a kid who doesn’t try to be funny, but somehow always manages to make the other kids laugh. He's pretty bad at memorizing stuff, and spelling is his worst subject. (But so are math and reading!) The books feature an easy-to-read font designed especially for dyslexic readers.
Henry Winkler is an actor, producer, and director, and he speaks publicly all over the world. In addition, he has a star on the Hollywood Boulevard, was presented with the Order of the British Empire by the Queen of England, and the jacket he wore as the Fonz hangs in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, CD. But if you asked him what he was proudest of, he would say, "Writing the Hank Zipzer books with my partner, Lin Oliver,"
