Story Summary

Will Grom find her thrill skateboarding down Blueberry Hill?

GROM is a spunky first-time skateboarder who quickly finds herself flying headlong into a pond after being goaded by CALAMITY to skate down Blueberry Hill. More than a little dazed by this experience, GROM accepts help from some new friends; both real and imagined. Together they learn to ride the ups and downs of the skatepark. GROM develops the skills and confidence necessary to finally skate down Blueberry Hill. But CALAMITY has one last dastardly surprise for her. Grom will need to land a special new trick to overcome this final obstacle.

Colorful characters pop and glide through this funky free-flowing story of skateboarding and friendship. Whether learning our first trick or going for Olympic Gold, illustrator-author Brian Bowes's unique story draws us in and reminds us that the real trick to making our dreams come true is perseverance.

Bonus Sketchbook!
