9780448437491: My Secret Life as a Ping-Pong Wizard (Hank Zipzer: The World's Greatest Underachiever, No. 9)

Hank thought that getting through summer school to get to the fifth grade would be hard enough, but little did he know that it would get worse! Everyone in the fifth grade is starting to focus on a sport—and they’re really good. Everyone, that is, except Hank. When Papa Pete suggests that Hank take up Ping-Pong, he decides to give it a try but keeps it top secret, as he thinks the other kids will tease him about it not being a "real" sport. Hank is so good that he manages to Ping-Pong his way to the championship! But when he finds out the contest is being held at "Nick the Tick" McKelty’s family bowling alley, will he risk being the laughingstock of the fifth grade?

About the Author:

Henry Winkler is an acomplished actor, producer and director.  In 2003, Henry added author to his list of acheivements as he co-authored a series of children's books.  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.

Henry is married to Stacey Weitzman and they have three children.


Lin Oliver is a writer and producer of movies, books, and television series for children and families. She has created over one hundred episodes of television, four movies, and seven books. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Alan. They have three sons named Theo, Ollie, and Cole, one fluffy dog named Annie, and no iguanas.

From Booklist:

Gr. 3-5. In the ninth book in the Hank Zipzer series, the self-styled "world's greatest underachiever" is trying yet again to please his father and keep the class bully at bay. The school's Parade of Athletes is drawing near, and Hank just wants to opt out. His learning disabilities make eye-hand coordination difficult, which causes him no end of embarrassment. It's not until Grandpa Pete introduces the fifth-grader to ping-pong that he finally discovers that sports can be fun. The Hank books haven't the depth of Jack Gantos' Joey Pigza novels, but they're fun without being overly messagey, and the success experience will speak to numerous readers. Stephanie Zvirin
