Growing up, Jerry Spinelli was really serious about baseball. He played for the Green Sox Little League team in his hometown of Norristown, Pennsylvania, and dreamed of one day playing for the major leagues, preferably as shortstop for the New York Yankees. Readers see his life in his autobiography Knots in My Yo-Yo String, as well as in his fiction. Crash came out of his desire to include the beloved Penn Relays of his home state of Pennsylvania in a book, while Maniac Magee is set in a fictional town based on his own hometown.

There are winners everywhere .... The sidewalks. The backyards. The alleyways. The playgrounds ...

Except for Zinkoff. Zinkoff never wins.

But Zinkoff doesn't notice. Neither do the other pups.

Not yet.

Zinkoff is like all kids -- running, playing, riding his bike. Hoping for snow days, wanting to be his dad when he grows up.

Zinkoff is not like the other kids -- raising his hand with all the wrong answers, tripping over his own feet, falling down with laughter over a word like "Jabip." The kids have their own word to describe him, but Zinkoff is too busy to hear it.

Once again, Newbery Medal-winning author Jerry Spinelli uses great wit and humor to create the unique story of Zinkoff as he travels from first through sixth grades. Loser is a touching book about the human spirit, the importance of failure, and how any name can someday be replaced with "hero."

My son had to read this for a book report. I usually buy the paperback, audible version, and Kindle version when he has to do these types of assignments in order to minimize excuses. I can say hey work on your book report whether we are home or on the go lol... He hates that... Since we waited until the last minute to work on his summer reading project I ended up listening to the Audible version and I read much of it on the Kindle app with him while we were on the road. I must say it’s a very good book. My son and I enjoyed it. It gave us a-lot to talk about. I found this book to be very helpful even to prep him for the first day of school. We live in a culture that if you are different you will encounter so many challenges. The funny thing is we all are different some are able to fit in a little easier but I think we’ve all have had some or many of the feelings the little protagonist had in this book! A great coming of age take for kids! I loved this kid Zinkoff because he reminded me of how I was growing up in so many ways and he has many similarities to my son. Great read! Read it with your kids.

This is the first Jerry Spinelli book that my third grade son read and it launched him into reading many other Spinelli books (such as Maniac Magee and Wringer, also both excellent books). This book will make you and your child think deeply about how not every child will fit into the mold of what most kids and adults consider popular or successful (such as the great athlete or the straight A student). The "Loser" in this book does not have these more commonly accepted gifts of athletic ability or great academic performance. But as you progress through the book, you grow to really appreciate the specialness and lovability of the main character. Highly recommended.

I personally love this book and have since I read it in 8th grade. The copy I read then only had the front cover reading "Loser" smeared on a drawn chalkboard. No description. Curiosity got the best of me and all I can say is that it exceeded my expectations...Mostly because I didn't know what to expect. Honestly, it's hard to describe. If you want it summed up, I guess you could say it's essentially like being a kid in a classroom all over again, only you're seated next to and inside the mind of That One Funny Misfit Kid-Zinkoff. (Also, that name is awesome.) ^.^

I really liked this book. It was very exciting when Claudia went missing and Zinkoff spent the night in the snowstorm looking for her. I recommend this book to anyone who doesn’t like reading because it will change your mind. I didn’t like that the waiting man was still waiting but that is true to life.i really liked the ending, but no spoiler here,you’ve got to read it yourself. Enjoy!

I used this book for many years in the 4th grade. I am now teaching 6th grade Language and Literature and hope to use it as well. It is not currently on the list of approved books for this new school district.

Excellent book and that's coming from a 46 year old adult who does not have children. I was super impressed by both the story and how it was written. The main character was so endearing and let's face it, we all have known at one time or another someone similar. Net net, I recommend this story for everyone, not just parents or teachers.
I liked this book. It was a good story, but it was also kinda odd. Why you ask? Because the whole first part of the book is good, but it doesn't have to do with the rest of the book. If I tell the story, I won't have the the story go like this: Once there was a family who ate cheese for dinner every night. They had a daughter, who married a guy from Israel. The part about the daughter isn't relevant to the family who ate cheese. I felt like that's what happened with this story. The reason I didn't give the book 3 stars is because of the main characters in the book. The "main" character is a kid named Donald, but my favorite character(s) are Polly and a guy that Donald calls the waiting man. I love these two characters because they are so pure.
