School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7-After learning about Hawk's birth and family, readers then follow his life from his first introduction to the skateboard at age eight until his retirement from the sport in 1999. Each chapter briefly discusses Hawk's school and family life before going on to talk about the competitions he was in during that time period. Unfortunately, the many colorful photographs and boxes titled "check it out" often have nothing to do with the text. The glossary gives a one-line description of 11 random skateboarding terms, and a short list of magazines, books, and Web sites is appended. The dry writing mixed with the limited topic makes this book of interest solely to skateboard enthusiasts, and even they might not find it worth the ride.-Rachel Fox, Port Washington Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
