Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cathy Puett Miller
Tanner Ryan is a skateboard fiend. He loves everything about it and he is really good. Trouble is the new neighborhood he and his parents just moved too is not too keen on skateboarding. He hates the place and the local folks are not too crazy about him either! But that is about to change. This adventure story is realistic and face-paced with key scenes that contain vivid descriptions of grinding and racing down steep hills and around curves at breakneck speeds. Even kids who do not skateboard will relate to Tanner and his passion (and they might learn a little about skateboarding as the text is full of related terms). The biggest surprise comes when Tanner visits his old neighborhood (and skateboard park) and unexpectedly finds a way to make his new digs more skateboard friendly. The answer is right in his own backyard! This easy reader (written at a 2.5 reading level) is hip enough to appeal to students in upper elementary and even middle school, which makes it perfect for reluctant or struggling readers.
