From renowned Newbery-winning author Jerry Spinelli comes a powerful story about how not fitting in just might lead to an incredible life. This classic book is perfect for fans of Gordon Korman and Carl Hiaasen.

Just like other kids, Zinkoff rides his bike, hopes for snow days, and wants to be like his dad when he grows up. But Zinkoff also raises his hand with all the wrong answers, trips over his own feet, and falls down with laughter over a word like "Jabip."

Other kids have their own word to describe him, but Zinkoff is too busy to hear it. He doesn't know he's not like everyone else. And one winter night, Zinkoff's differences show that any name can someday become "hero."

With some of his finest writing to date and great wit and humor, Jerry Spinelli creates a story about a boy's individuality surpassing the need to fit in and the genuine importance of failure. As readers follow Zinkoff from first through sixth grade, it becomes impossible not to identify with and root for him through failures and triumphs. The perfect classroom read.

4 5 Author: Jerry Spinelli Narrator: Steve Buscemi.

Steve Buscemi's performance provides a feeling of familiarity with the Zinkoff family. His low, mellow tones and laid-back reading make for a comfortable listening experience. Characters are undifferentiated vocally, but that isn't necessary here. Because of Spinelli's writing and Buscemi's reading, listeners will find Donald Zinkoff enchanting. c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine. Retail pak, Harper Audio, 2002.

My son had to read this for a book report. I usually buy the paperback, audible version, and Kindle version when he has to do these types of assignments in order to minimize excuses. I can say hey work on your book report whether we are home or on the go lol... He hates that... Since we waited until the last minute to work on his summer reading project I ended up listening to the Audible version and I read much of it on the Kindle app with him while we were on the road. I must say it’s a very good book. My son and I enjoyed it. It gave us a-lot to talk about. I found this book to be very helpful even to prep him for the first day of school. We live in a culture that if you are different you will encounter so many challenges. The funny thing is we all are different some are able to fit in a little easier but I think we’ve all have had some or many of the feelings the little protagonist had in this book! A great coming of age take for kids! I loved this kid Zinkoff because he reminded me of how I was growing up in so many ways and he has many similarities to my son. Great read! Read it with your kids.

The "Loser" in this book does not have these more commonly accepted gifts of athletic ability or great academic performance. But as you progress through the book, you grow to really appreciate the specialness and lovability of the main character. Highly recommended.

I personally love this book and have since I read it in 8th grade. The copy I read then only had the front cover reading "Loser" smeared on a drawn chalkboard. No description. Curiosity got the best of me and all I can say is that it exceeded my expectations...Mostly because I didn't know what to expect. Honestly, it's hard to describe. If you want it summed up, I guess you could say it's essentially like being a kid in a classroom all over again, only you're seated next to and inside the mind of That One Funny Misfit Kid-Zinkoff. (Also, that name is awesome.) ^.^

I really liked this book. It was very exciting when Claudia went missing and Zinkoff spent the night in the snowstorm looking for her. I recommend this book to anyone who doesn’t like reading because it will change your mind. I didn’t like that the waiting man was still waiting but that is true to life.i really liked the ending, but no spoiler here,you’ve got to read it yourself. Enjoy!

I used this book for many years in the 4th grade. I am now teaching 6th grade Language and Literature and hope to use it as well. It is not currently on the list of approved books for this new school district.

Cover arrived noticeable used but no rips/writing on pages. Overall- happy!

Excellent book and that's coming from a 46 year old adult who does not have children. I was super impressed by both the story and how it was written. The main character was so endearing and let's face it, we all have known at one time or another someone similar. Net net, I recommend this story for everyone, not just parents or teachers.
I liked this book. It was a good story, but it was also kinda odd. Why you ask? Because the whole first part of the book is good, but it doesn't have to do with the rest of the book. If I tell the story, I won't have the the story go like this: Once there was a family who ate cheese for dinner every night. They had a daughter, who married a guy from Israel. The part about the daughter isn't relevant to the family who ate cheese. I felt like that's what happened with this story. The reason I didn't give the book 3 stars is because of the main characters in the book. The "main" character is a kid named Donald, but my favorite character(s) are Polly and a guy that Donald calls the waiting man. I love these two characters because they are so pure.
