Hank Zipzer: The World’s Greatest Underachiever co-author Lin Oliver is coming to Sydney, attending the International Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators Conference (SCBWI), 17-19 September.
The HANK ZIPZER series stars charismatic underdog Hank, and is co-written by Henry Winkler – The Fonz from Happy Days. Inspired by the true life experiences of Henry Winkler, the series is funny, touching and deals with learning differences in a gentle and humorous manner.
“I think it’s most important for kids to know that inside each one of them is a unique and special contribution to make to the world,” says Lin. “Their life’s journey is about finding what their unique contribution is, and it doesn’t matter if it’s not like everyone else’s journey – there are many ways to get there.”
‘The stories are well-told and enjoyably colourful . . . there’s plenty of fun to be had with Hank and his friends.’
