Description

Donald Zinkoff doesn't really notice when he officially becomes a loser; but all of the other kids do. Though he has always had an annoying giggle, messy handwriting, bad grades, and extreme clumsiness, he is not officially deemed a loser until he loses a race for his team in the fourth grade. And as his happiness and positive attitude continue, he will make listeners think about how they treat their friends and the people around them. Zinkoff's world is fun and happy no matter what everyone else thinks of him. "Because of Spinelli's writing and Buscemi's reading, listeners will find Donald Zinkoff enchanting."-Audiofile

Professional reviews

"Meet Donald Zinkoff. He loves school and snickerdoodles. He wants to grow up to be a mailman, just like his dad, and he never notices when he "loses." Listeners follow Donald's life from first through sixth grade. He has a zest for life that some find endearing and others just plain odd. 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. J.M.P.
