    This book serves its purpose 100%, which is to keep kids INTERESTED BUSY QUIET for extended periods of time. And so the actual content is incidental. My kids are all sons, and so your mileage may vary with daughters. Highly recommended.

    My son Tyson is a skateboarder so I can relate to the tricks and flips and the talk of trucks and grip tape. I want know how the Tyson in the story didn't break his board in half on a weekly basis. We went through decks here like nobody's business. "Skateboard Breakdown" reminds me of comics I read when I was younger. This would be excellent for a reluctant reader, particularly one who is not into competitive team sports.

"Skateboard Breakdown" reminds me of comics I read when I was younger. This would be excellent for a reluctant reader, particularly one who is not into competitive team sports. Tyson Taggart is dealing with the loss of his brother and is reckless in his grief. This might be a good choice for a reader who is struggling to cope with some sort of adversity in their own life. The message in this book is not subtle. It's about coping with loss and disappointment without giving up. It's about bailing on a trick and then trying again. Getting back up, pushing forward, and looking for a solid landing no matter what stood in your way before.

    A bit different from the others in the series, since it's not about a team sport. This one is about a young skateboarder working through a lot of issues, including grief over the death of his older brother. A friend of his brother's helps him both with his skateboarding and his life, in a very small number of pages. Surprisingly, this works pretty well. Not a masterpiece, but interesting.
