As with the other books in this fun series, the characters are realistic and relatable. FAKE SNAKES AND WEIRD WIZARDS: HERE'S HANK, BOOK 4 shows Hank Zipzer going to great lengths to try to make his sister's birthday the best day ever. Resilient as ever, Hank pushes himself outside his comfort zone to find success. Hank is funny and self-deprecating, and he needs other people -- such as his friends, his grandfather, and even the reptile wrangler -- to point out his considerable strengths. The overall tone is warm and engaging, with gentle humor and an understanding of the love and friction between siblings.
