VOYA
Tony Hawk is a matter-of-fact book that includes all the details of Hawk's rise to fame, from the early days when skateboarding was uncool, through countless hours of practice, and finally to professional success. The book is made readable by Hawk's accounts of his difficulties at school, his feelings of being an outsider as he was growing up, and his love and admiration for his father, who died in 1995. For those who really want to emulate the man, Hawk provides an appendix of his "top tens," including "Ten Hardest Tricks to Learn," "Ten Favorite CDs," and "Ten Favorite Types of Food." Although the photos are black and white, they complement the text. An attractive design adds to the cool factor. This title will be an excellent choice for otherwise reluctant readers. Photos.

Chapter One

Maniac Kid

I was an accident. My mom laughs and shakes her head no whenever I say that, but it's the truth. She prefers to say I was a surprise. My parents, who were both in their forties when I came along, thought they'd finished raising kids. When my mom had me, she was in the middle of completing her college education and my dad worked as a salesman. My oldest sister, Lenore, was off at college, my other sister, Patricia, had just graduated from high school, and Steve, my brother, was twelve years old when I, the screaming baby wrapped in a blue blanket, came home.

I was an absolute nightmare for the first decade of my life. I began committing offenses when I was still in my crib and barely able to walk, but I never felt anything but love from my family.

Because my dad worked full-time and my mom was at school, they hired an elderly, sweet nanny to watch me. I knew she loved me, but I didn't like the fact that she had control over when I ate, slept, and played. One of my earliest memories is of trying to score a direct hit on her using any toy within my hand's reach. I'd often wake up in my crib just in time to spot her peering in on me. Whenever I saw her head of willowy white, I'd grab the nearest toy and launch it at her. I rarely succeeded in hitting her, but my trying was enough to make her quit.

I tortured a list of nannies and treated some better than others. But I treated my parents worst of all. My mom has dozens of embarrassing stories of me and my spastic temper. Once, when she told me I was old enough to sleep in my own bed, in my own room, I thought differently and decided to take matters into my ownhands. When I thought my parents were asleep, I began the first stage of my special operations mission. I got on my hands and knees and crawled below my parents' line of sight, or so I thought. I slinked down the hallway like a worm. Slowly and somewhat quietly, I pushed open the door to their room. Staying low, I silently crept to the edge of the bed, ready to crawl up quietly and sneak in under the covers. When I looked up to start my climb, Mom was there staring me down. I shook my fists at her, knowing my plan had been foiled. As I crawled back to my room, I swore in my mind to extract revenge at a later date.

Another time soon after, my parents sent me to bed early -- probably so that they could get some well-deserved, relaxing time to themselves. I was so annoyed that I had to go to sleep while they were still up having fun, that I yanked all the sheets, pillows, and blankets off my bed. Carrying everything down the hall, I sat on the stairs and one by one threw everything at them. A shower of bedding rained down on them while they watched TV and just pretended not to notice.

My parents had to stop having guests over, because they couldn't predict how I would act. One time when I was about five years old, they thought I'd mellowed enough to invite some friends over. I ended up crawling on the table and upsetting the place settings, not to mention my parents. Needless to say, after that they didn't have any guests over for years.

No matter what I did, my parents still showered me with love. They were incapable of being disappointed with me. One of my parents' friends summed it up best when she told my mom she thought I was spoiled rotten.

"He's not spoiled rotten," my mom replied, "he's loved."

"Well, then he's loved rotten," the friend said.

The Great Escape

From the time I was two, I knew I had my parents wrapped around my finger. There weren't a lot of problems I couldn't solve with a massive temper tantrum. After a while, my parents always caved in to my demands. Naturally, I thought the whole world would be as easy to manipulate.

Cold hard reality smacked me in the face moments after my dad dropped me off at Christopher Robin Preschool. I was three and short for my age. I stared up at the tall chain-link fences that surrounded the school. They seemed as high as skyscrapers -- impossible to climb over to escape. I couldn't believe my parents would leave me in such a horrible place! The first day was the worst of my young life. Every day we had to run through a fire drill. We'd file outside and silently wait for instructions from the teachers. At lunchtime we were forced to sit with our head in our hands and keep silent for a minute before we ate. At that point, I don't think I'd ever maintained a full minute of silence.

The absolute worst torture the school inflicted on me was the forced nap time. I was hyper, to say the least, and I had to be running around, tapping my feet, or deeply involved in an activity or else I went bananas from boredom. I still have nightmares about trying to stay still on my sleep mat, squeezing my eyes shut as the teacher walked around checking on us. I never once fell asleep.

My terror of preschool became so great that one time my sister Lenore visited me at school and I grabbed her leg like a drowning person and wouldn't let go. I had to be pried off.

I knew I needed to get away from there, so after a few months I became obsessed with escaping. I devised a plan. I would cry. It wasn't rocket science or anything, but it worked with my parents, so I figured it would work with my teachers, too.

    Tony Hawk is the most Awesome Dude on the planet!!

    This book is a biography about Tony Hawk by Tony Hawk. The book is good for kids ages 9 to 12. He writes about growing up and making decisions about his career. He starts off as a surprise. His parents weren't expecting another kid. He was not like his brothers and sisters.His brothers and sisters were very calm and level-headed. He was a total spaz. He was the "King Kong of tantrams," It was part of his diet. His mom let him get his our shopping cart and put whatever he wanted in there. He also had a competitive edge. When he and his mom were playing tennis, he kept pelting her with tennis balls. She would serve it over the net and he would charge forward load up his arm like a slingshot. Then release. When he went preschool is was a sad day for little Tony. He knew he had to get out of there. He would put his fingers in the fence, close it and start balling his head off. He would go crazy. He did it everyday. Until, his dad and the teachers had a talk. He wouldn't go back to Christpher Robin Preschool ever again. His dad thought it was funny. When he finally started elementary school, he couldn't concentrate. He fidgeted with pencils. His mom couldn't understand why. So she had him take an IQ test and he scored 144. His parents had a chance put him in advanced classes. He went to the advanced classes. He saw if you weren't paying attention the teacher would hit you in the head with a reem of paper. He got so scared he went back to the other classes. When his brother,Steve went to college, Tony wasn't happy. He and his brother were bffs. He'd let Tony hang out with his friends. He would visit once a month. They got bored one afternoon. Then Steve pulled out a blue fiber glass skateboard. Steve was a surfer so he skated from time to time. They went to an alley with no cars and Tony rode it. He kept crashing. He complained to his brother that he couldn't turn Steve showed him how to avoid things. He liked it, but it wasn't something he craved. Every other week, he pulled out the skateboard and cruised in the alley. He skated more and more. Six months later, he skated a few times a week. Some kids in the neighborhood skated. Once he started skating more. He begged and pleaded with his parents to let him go to the local skatepark Oasis. They didn't have the money to get a park membership.So his dad built him a slant ramp. His parent loved encouraging him. They saw that he enjoyed skating so much that they bought him a new board. For the first time a neighborhood kid asked him if he wanted to go to Oasis with him and his friends. He begged and pleaded his mom and dad and said his life would be horrible if they didn't let him go. After a day of that they let him go. His first time at Oasis was so great he had to take it all in. He was very happy to be at Oasis. He went to the beginner bowl. He practiced all day. On the way back something had changed in him. He was hooked on skating. He got so good that he got sponsored at age fourteen. He has done a lot with his career as a skateboarder. He started his own company that makes skateboard equipment and gear. This is a very inspirational book. It shows you how to follow your dreams. Anyone who likes Tony Hawk will love this book. Read this book!!

    TONY HAWK PROFESSIONAL SKATEBOARDER
    Author: Tony Hawk with Sean Mortimer


    This is a story about the life of professional skateboarder Tony Hawk. Tony grew up in California and this is where he learned to skateboard. Tony was always a hyper person with ADHD but he had a great determination. This determination made him one of the most successful skateboarders in the world.
    Growing up, Tony was the only skate boarder in his school. Having no friends and being small didn't bother him when he was skate boarding. He also played basketball, baseball, and played the violin but he quit them because he wanted to focus on skateboarding. When he was eleven he entered his first skate boarding contest. It lasted so long that they left before the results were posted. By the end of that year he had won his age division. In 1983 his dad started the National Skateboarding Association. He sold his first board for $0.85 and by the time he was fifteen he was making $500 to $1000 a month selling skateboards. A few years after he got out of school he started his own company called Bird House. He retired from skateboarding after the 1999 X Games.
    This story takes place in California from the time Tony was eleven until 1999 when he was an adult. It covers his life and how he became successful.
    I really enjoyed this book because I think learning about people's life is interesting. I also find skateboarding fun. I could relate to many of the things Tony experienced growing up like being small and having being hyper. It made me feel like you can do anything you want to do if you try hard enough.
    I was able to relate to Tony being hyper and having ADHD. I also related to how he didn't have many friends and was made fun of for being skinny and small. I have also read Tony Hawk on the Half Pipe but I enjoyed this one more because it was more about what he went through growing up.
