Donald Zinkoff is no ordinary kid.  From his first day of kindergarten up to middle school, no one can quite understand him.  He loves school, laughs at the wrong times in class, trips over his own feet, and is picked last to play.  Nonetheless, Donald maintains his uniqueness and enthusiasm for life despite the opposition he faces from his peers throughout the years.

This book is great for anyone looking for a humorous and heart-warming read.  Donald is a character that youth may especially be able to relate to and teaches an important lesson about being true to yourself.
