Henry Winkler

Henry Winkler, best known for his role as "The Fonz" on Happy Days, has been entertaining audiences for 30 years. What many may not know is that he is also the best selling author of the popular children's book series Hank Zipzer. The book is about a young boy who is struggling to get through the 4th grade, which is inspired by how his own undiagnosed dyslexia made him a classic childhood underachiever. Now, he's back with a new series entitled Here's Hank, starring a younger, 2nd grade Hank. 

Winkler discussed his commitment to helping kids overcome their personal challenges and fears through humor and the special font used in Here's Hank that is custom-made for dyslexic readers, with letters that can't be flipped or inverted by the dyslexic mind.
