I Got a "D" in Salami

I Got a "D" in Salami

Series: Hank Zipzer (Book #2)
by Lin Oliver, Henry Winkler

It's report card day — the most dreaded day in Hank's school year. And when Hank gets his grades, they're his worst nightmare come true: a D in spelling, a D in reading, a D in math. After school, Hank and his friends go to his mom's deli. His mom is on the prowl; she knows a report card day when she sees one. Hank tries to stall her, but she's going for his backpack. He's cornered.

Hank hands the report card off to his friend Frankie, who gives it to his friend Ashley, who gives it to Robert, who puts it into a meat grinder! Hank watches as his Ds are ground into a big salami, and this particular salami is being made for a very important client. How will Hank get out of this one?
