"It can be especially challenging to get boys to read, but a new series inspired by skateboarding star, Tony Hawk, just might do the trick! Tony Hawk’s 900 Revolution, an action-adventure, sci-fi series for kids, premiers this month with four titles, leading up to a total of 24 books. In the series, when Tony Hawk achieves the Holy Grail of skateboarding -- the 900 trick, a 2.5-revolution (900 degrees) aerial spin -- a mysterious force shatters his board and scatters the pieces around the world. A group of teens sets off on a quest to bring the board (and its power) back together again. Each of these chapter books also features a 16-page graphic novel section! And kids can play an interactive game at www.TonyHawkReadingRevolution.com while reading these exciting books.
