Hank Reubens is a student in Ms. Colman's class at Stoneybrook Academy.


Hank is a boy with short light brown hair and brown eyes.


Hank lives in downtown Stoneybrook and near a busy street in Karen's Wedding. He hosted a car wash for two dollars to earn money to buy Ms. Colman a gift for her wedding. The entire class got together at his house to help out.

In Spelling Bee, he competed against the other students in several spelling bees in several tournaments. He finally won the class tournament and went on to compete against Debbie Dvorak in Mr. Berger's class. Hank purposely threw the last round after he learned that his classmates were betting on him. He and Debbie had decided to compete again where he really won. Hanks says he wants to be a professor or a detective when he grows up. He was also a member of the star club.

In Karen's Gift, he did not have anyone to bring to school for their Mothers' Day party. His dad ended up coming to the class to celebrate with him.

His parents are divorced and he lives with his father full time. He visits his mother in Florida where she now lives with the rest of her family. His five-year-old twin younger sisters also go to Stoneybrook Academy and are in kindergarten, as mentioned in Spelling Bee.

He runs for class representative against Karen Brewer, Pamela Harding, Jannie Gilbert, and Chris Lamar in Karen's Magician. He breaks the rules by giving false promises to his classmates by saying his uncle is a talent scout and could get someone famous to come to Fun Night. He ends up losing to Karen.

In Karen's Kite, Hank's dad is invited to visit his class with his bird Sassy.
