Through a series of incredible mis-adventures (so what else is new), our boy blunder finds himself participating in the Skateboard Championship of the Universe. (It would be "of the World" except for the one kid who claims to be from Jupiter-a likely story, in spite of his two heads and seven arms.) It's a tough crowd where anything goes as long as you win. Amidst the incredible chaotic chaos by incurably corrupt competitors (say that five times fast), Wally learns there is more to life (or in his case, near-death) than winning.
All the moves to become a serious skateboarder.
Praise for The Skateboarding Field Manual, also by Ryan Stutt:
"Stutt's appealing title is rife with the glossy glamour that should win nods of approval from even proficient shredders." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
From selecting the right board, to learning which way to stand, to landing a kick flip, Skateboarding Skills provides critical instruction for young riders of all experience levels. New riders will learn essential skills to advance their riding ability while experienced riders will learn new tricks to add to their repertoire.
Ryan Stutt shows riders the fundamental techniques that will lead them to success as they practice skateboarding's most important and widely-used flips, grinds and slides. These include:
With Skateboarding Skills, riders will learn the building blocks that are the basis of all skateboarding tricks. Instruction for both flatground and vert skateboarding, plus real-time action sequences that capture the tricks step by step, will help riders learn how to execute the same moves that professional skateboarders use.
All photographs show riders wearing the most essential of safety equipment -- a helmet.
"Tanner Ryan hates everything about his new town. All of his friends are back in his old city, and the only thing he likes in Woodville is his family's pool. That is until he discovers the Curves, the most amazing place ever to skateboard. Unfortunately, on the same day he finds the Curves, he meets Bennett Parsons III, the resident bully. And the locals aren't happy that Tanner's been skateboarding all over town. Can Tanner make friends and still have fun doing what he likes to do? Or has he been doomed to a life without skateboarding?"

Slicko-Ricko's Advertising Agency claims they can make the dorkiest human in the world the most famous. And of course, no one qualifies like our boy blunder. Soon he starts in his own "A Day in the Life" TV series, and he's endorsing everything from denture cleaners to lingerie. Every cool person in the world is dyeing their hair and wearing glasses just like Wally McDoogle, but it isn't until he becomes the star player for his junior high school basketball team that things get really out of hand, and our hero finally learns that being famous isn't all it's cut out to be.
