When I was a kid, the Fonz was a character we all knew. He was cool. You did not mess with the Fonz. I have fond memories of Happy Days as a kid and still enjoy seeing Henry Winkler on T.V. He was recently on an episode of Anderson Cooper, where Anderson revealed he was obsessed with the Fonz as a kid—so much so, he went as Fonzie several Halloween’s.
Did you know that Henry Winkler has also written 20 books? I did not either! When I was contacted by Scholastic to review the latest series, “Ghost Buddy,” I was simply delighted. The story is co-written by Lin Oliver and so far, there are two books in the series, “Zero to Hero,” and the latest “Mind If I Read Your Mind.”
Allie and I started reading the book together today and she is thrilled to find out more about Billy Broccoli, the boy who befriends the ghost Hoover Porterhouse. Hoove comes up with a plan to help Billy get revenge on the school bully. Hoove is a funny teenage ghost, with a major attitude.
