Hank Zipzer is a creative and likable kid. So why, oh why, does his every effort get messed up? There's a good reason, a learning difference that has gone unnoticed. The book's only glitch seems to be characters who throw out witty quips like 10-year-olds going on 25. NIAGARA FALLS, OR DOES IT? portrays itself as a child's book, but perhaps its real targets are adults, those most capable of helping a child who always seems to fail, despite his best efforts. Henry Winkler's presentation is enthusiastic, brimming with zest; his love and empathy for kids are endearing. This narration is a winner, and this title is a good choice for parents and their children to listen to together. P.H.M.
