I was a juror in Hank Zipzer's trial. It is hard to decide if people are guilty or innocent. I liked being a juror. I'd love to do it again. We had two different scripts and two different responses to each one. It was hard to just sit there and be quiet. Shae
I thought the trial was hard work!. In both trials I thought that Hank was guilty. I thought it was good for Hank to write a five paragraph essay so he can practice his writing and show that he can do it. Being a juror is fun. You get to pick if they're guilty or innocent. The worst part was when you had to be quiet. The first time I picked that he was guilty but everyone picked innocent, and the second time, we all picked guilty. Hank should really pay attention more often. Mya
In the Hank Zipzer trials, I was part of the jury that decided that the first Hank was innocent and the second Hank was guilty. In the first trial, we has a more credible evidence. The Hank Zipzer trials were about Hank not doing his essay. The trials were very interesting and fun. I like acting like a professional. Rylee
I was a juror in a trial and it was hard because there were so many points to the case. Hank tried to back up the cases. But Ms. Adolf was the one who said use your creativity. I think it was Hank's parents' fault. In the first trial, we voted innocent. In the second, we voted guilty. It was hard to sit and be quiet. Gillian
I thought it was a hard job. They gave us two different arguments. They made us change our mind from the first to the second. I think what made us change our minds was in the second one they said to use your creativity in the essay. In the first one, they just said use your creativity. Kaleb
I was a juror in the Hank Zipzer trials. I thought it was interesting. I think it was hard to make the choices. The first play was really innocent. That was the easy one. But when it came to the second one as I was listening it was a little hard. At the end it was easy, he was totally guilty. Isabella
New Characters for Hank!
Jule by Faith
Hank Zipzer has a terrible enemy and her name is Jule. It started one day when Hank was at school and at class time he got a word wrong in Spelling. The teacher called on Jule to to fix the word and she got it right. Hank was embarrassed and that's how they met.
Jule was four feet tall. She had blond hair and blue eyes. She was very good at everything but being nice is what Hank thought. She even had her own little gang that followed her everywhere. Her desk was even neat, something that Hank could never do.
Jule was mean to Hank every day. She corrected him on almost every thing that he did wrong. Like one day, she corrected him in reading. Another day, she corrected him in Math, so you could see what I mean.
Kaitlyn by Jaden
One day, there is this new girl that comes to P.S. 87 named Kaitlyn, and... Hank likes her! Hank finds out that she likes all the same things he does - clubhouses, dogs, and especially black and white cookies from Crunchy Pickle down the street. Hank is nose-deep in love with her.
She has beautiful, long hair, almost like a real life Rapunzel. She has big, sky blue eyes and wonderful clothes. And most of all, she is dyslexic just like Hank! She is in the same grade as him and she also hates reptiles and smaller siblings. Even better! Kaitlyn lives in the same building as Hank!
Yes, I know, you think Kaitlyn is all so perfect with not a hint of evil in there, but Nick "The Tick" McKelty is actually her COUSIN! Hank has some challenges to face before he can be with Kaitlyn, some very big challenges, because Nick is acting like she is actually his Rapunzel and he's the fake mother. Hank has some work to do, which he doesn't feel like doing right now.
