My Dog's a Scaredy-Cat

By Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver
Rating: 3 3/4 stars
Reviewed by Noelle

This is book 10 in the Hank Zipzer series. It is Halloween, and Hank has a fabulous idea for the school's costume parade--a table at an Italian restaurant! Despite his friends' warnings, he forges ahead with his costume, and if you know Hank, you know that things didn't quite work out like he planned. But what bothers Hank the most is when Nick McKelty, the 5th grade bully, makes fun of both him and his sister, Emily, in front of the whole school. It is time to put a stop to Nick the Tick's bullying! Hank recruits his friends Ashley and Frankie to put together a last-minute haunted house in his living room to give McKelty the scare of his life! But when Hank's dog, Cheerio, goes missing, revenge takes a backseat. Can they find Cheerio in time to still give Nick his scare? As always, a Hank Zipzer story is full of fun and laughs, along with a big heart. Readers will chuckle along with Hank's ups and downs and come back looking for more installments to eat up.
