Meet Hank Zipzer.  He may just be the world's best underachiever.  He studies and studies and still gets bad grades.  As a matter of fact, he works very hard studying for his spelling test.  And he knows the words down cold.  But, when it comes time for the spelling bee, he can't remember a thing.  When the report card comes, there is a big fat "D" in spelling.  And a letter from his teacher!  He can't let his parents see these!  As luck would have it, the whole envelop ends up in a batch of soy salami.  Do you want to know how?  Do you want to know what happens to the salami?  Read this new Hank Zipzer adventure.
