Love the new CBBC series? Read the original books! TV tie-in edition of the New York Times bestselling series about the hilarious adventures of a cheeky, loveable hero. In this story, Hank is the star in the school play, but a costume disaster on opening night threatens the whole show. Twelve-year-old Hank is a likeable, struggling hero that readers will adore. He is a smart and resourceful boy with a unique perspective on the world. Hank has dyslexia, and when problems arise, he deals with them in a way no one else would - putting him on a direct collision course with his teachers and parents.
