Hank Zipzer has been given the worst school report of his life. There are several things that he fears will happen to him because of this report: one, his sister and her pet lizard will laugh at him, two, he will be stuck at school for ever, and, three, the school bully will call him stupid. Hank needs to hide that school report now. And where better than the meat grinder at his mum's cafe, The Crunchy Pickle... What could possibly go wrong?!
