Inspired by the true life experiences of Henry Winkler, whose undiagnosed dyslexia made him a classic childhood underachiever, the Hank Zipzer series is about the high-spirited and funny adventures of a boy with learning differences.PS 87 is having multicultural week, and Ms. Adolf's class is putting on a "Foods From Around the World" luncheon. Hank makes enchiladas, and at the luncheon, Ms. Adolf piles her plate with lots of food. But after a few bites, her face turns bright red-one of the dishes is super-spicy! Ms. Adolf accuses someone of playing a mean practical joke and punishes the entire class with no recess until the guilty party comes forward. Hank realizes his trouble with numbers might have caused the problem-what if he accidentally used three cups of peppers instead of 1/3 cup? Will Hank be able to get recess back for everyone without getting detention for the rest of his life?Illustrated by Carol Heyer.

"The red socks with the pink monkeys stitched on them," Emily said. "They always bring me luck. I wore them when I got one hundred percent plus ten extra-credit points on my math test. And I wore them when I got the solo part in the Winter Sing. And..."
I didn't hear the rest of what she said. All I could do was look very slowly, so that no one would notice, down at my feet, which were covered in my sister's lucky monkey socks.
Maybe they really were the reason I could suddenly pitch.
No, it couldn't be.
No way.
