A House-boat On The Styx

RRP $16.99

Charon, the Ferryman of renown, was cruising slowly along the Styx one pleasant Friday morning not long ago, and as he paddled idly on he chuckled mildly to himself as he thought of the monopoly in ferriage which in the course of years he had managed to build up."It's a great thing," he said, with a smirk of satisfaction-"it's a great thing to be the go-between between two states of being; to have the exclusive franchise to export and import shades from one state to the other, and withal to have had as clean a record as mine has been. Valuable as is my franchise, I never corrupted a public official in my life, and-"Here Charon stopped his soliloquy and his boat simultaneously. As he rounded one of the many turns in the river a singular object met his gaze, and one, too, that filled him with misgiving. It was another craft, and that was a thing not to be tolerated.


Skateboarding Skills

RRP $19.99

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:

  • Ollies and Nollies
  • Manuals
  • Boardslides, Lipslides, Noseslides and Tailslides
  • 50-50 grinds, 5-0 grinds and Nose grinds
  • Smith grinds, Feeble grinds and Crooked grinds
  • Kickflips and Heelflips
  • Pop Shuvs
  • Varial Flips and 360 Flips.

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.
