Summary: Hank Zipzer was a forth-grade boy with dyslexia, but he didn't tell anyone. Ms. Adolf, Hank's teacher told him a Japanese boy would come to Hank's house as his special guest during the multicultural festival in his school. Before Yoshi came, Hank and his classmates guessed how did Yoshi looks like. He might be "smallish" , and wearing uniform all the time, be well-behave around his father. But the truth was that he looked cool! He showed up with a black skateboard, wearing jeans and T-shirt, and his hair was gelled into a porcupine. In addition, Hank found him love Enchilada, a kind of Mexican food. So Hank decided to cook Enchilada for the multicultural festival. The only job Hank needed to do was to read the recipe to his classmates But Hank had dyslexia! He could not read and recognized words well! Then he just guessed the meaning of the recipe which made a mess to the multicultural festival-- because he put too much chili powder to the Enchilada!

Sometimes we make judgments about a person based upon their looks, actions, speech and even their nationality. When we hear the word, disability, we might assume the person with a disability is weird or dumb. People from other countries are often considered peculiar and even unpleasant.

The Oxford Advanced Learner'sDictionary defines the word, stereotype, as, “[an] idea or image that many people have of a particular type of person or thing, but which is often not true in reality.” (1).

The sixth book in the Hank Zipzer series, Holy Enchilada!, tackles this subject of stereotypes with an amusing and eventful story.

The first chapter opens with Hank Zipzer reeling from a math test on fractions. He has some difficulties in general with math but when it comes to fractions, Hank feels that he is worse than worse.
Distracted by his frustrations, Hank misses part of Ms. Adolf's introduction to a special school event.

Hank's school, PS87, is hosting a celebration of Multi-Cultural Day and Ms. Adolf's class has been chosen to cook foods from other countries for lunch on that particular day. Ms. Adolf also informs her class that Yoshi Morimoto, son of the principal from a “sister school” in Japan will be their special guest. Yoshi and his father are touring schools around the United States and have chosen to visit PS87 for two days. To make the event extra special, Yoshi will be allowed to stay overnight with one of the students in Ms. Adolf's class. Names are put in a hat and Hanks name is chosen.

The book continues on with Hank and his friends discussing Japan and what Japanese kids must be like. Yoshi will probably have short hair, wear short pants and even have thick glasses. Ms. Adolf shares her concern with Hank about the fact that his family isn't really a “typical American family” and she wants to make a good impression on the visitors, but Hank's name was chosen so Ms. Adolf agrees to let their Japanese visitor stay overnight with Hank.

Yoshi and his father finally arrive at the school and the class discovers that some of their assumptions about Japanese kids isn't actually true. Hank and Yoshi get better acquainted and we find out that Yoshi loves to eat enchiladas. Later that day, Hank and his friends get together and decide to make enchiladas for the international lunch celebration. Hank finds a recipe and the ingredients are purchased. Each member of the group has an assignment for helping with the cooking. Hank's job is to read the recipe. Oh no! Hank has dyslexia and he gets a bit confused when he reads the fraction measurements in the recipe, especially the amount of chili powder that is needed. Hank is embarrassed about his dyslexia and doesn't tell anyone. He just guesses.

The enchiladas are finished and the next day the food is taken to the school. Hank is concerned that he may have read the recipe wrong and added too much chili powder. He frets all morning long.

The luncheon begins. Ms Adolf gets sick. The problem turns extreme and finally, the truth reveals lots of interesting facts about Ms. Adolf, about Hank, and about their Japanese visitors. Hank learns some valuable things about himself and his new friend, Yoshi.

Mr. Winkler and Ms. Oliver tell a delightful story which succeeds in presenting some important issues about learning disabilities, people of other countries, and stereotypes.
