Henry Winkler, otherwise known as "The Fonz" from the TV series Happy Days, is the proud co-author of 17 children’s books featuring a school-age, dyslexic protagonist.

The character, named Hank Zipzer, is inspired by Winkler’s own experiences in school and on the set of Happy Days, where he used his humor and imagination to succeed despite being negatively affected by the stigma of his dyslexia.

To make the stories appealing to children with learning disabilities, the books are designed with short chapters, clear print, and lots of pictures.
