Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Bonita Herold
Tyler Trofee, age 10, loves skateboarding more than anything—maybe a little too much. It's bad enough that he neglects his room, but when he breaks his mom's bench and his brand-new skateboard, there's a price to pay. It's off to the neighbors to work so he can learn some responsibility. But there is trouble when he backslides. Oops! He has to suffer through thirty days of hard, manual labor! With a new skateboard park about to host its grand opening, what is Tyler doing pulling weeds? No wonder he has the blues! The book promises to be a hit with young skateboarders. With a glossary and a page of historical background, the book is sure to appeal to an even wider audience. As the Sports Illustrated KIDS "Victory School Superstars" series continues, Yasuda proves herself, once again, more than capable of joining the line-up of authors able and willing to spread the joy of sports. Readers can bank on it.
