    The artwork was good and the story a basic tale about bullying and the conseuences thereof I thought that this was a realistic view of bullying than children books tend to convey I thought that the interruption of the text to show how tricks were done was interesting I'm not certain if it was effective but it didn't seem to interrupt it too terribly muchIf I were a kid who actually enjoyed skateboarding I'm certain I would have loved this text seeing how for once the skaters weren't demonized etc So a good kid's book overall

    I'm currtly reading Ramp Rats It's a pretty good graphic novel book There's these two characters their names are Bounceand Pema they want to skate at a skatpark but theres bullys there telling them to leave I picked this book becuase it involves sports and a little action The bullys name is Crunch in the book hes the main bully Im at the part were Bounce is trying to redeam his self becuase his mom think he was involved in a burglary but he wasnt so hes going take a picture of the person who did the burglary I give this book a four star

    This wasn't a bad book but it was definitely for little kids The storyline though would definitely speak to younger kids and help them through life situations as the artwork was also pretty good so overall pretty good book

    Benny Pema Marcus and Nima are skaters They have run ins with the skate park bully build their own ramp and foil the local crime ring In theory a middle grade graphic novel about skateboarding sounds like a good idea And maybe it is for kids who already like skateboarding But the book is riddled with under explained lingo and is sorely lacking in finding aids Ramp Rats could do with a diagram of a skateboard with labeled parts as well as a glossary Inserted in the plot sometimes in very awkward plot undermining places are instructions for tricks aspiring skaters could try In order to make these instructions usable the book could also do with page numbers and an index of where each trick is located This graphic novel is split into chapters which are notated so subtly that the kids who are looking for easy chapter books might miss them and those of us beyond the bridge level feel demeaned A skateboarding graphic novel is an excellent idea but this is an example of poor executionSSBRC

    I have a few problems with this book as it seems the characters have a disrespect for authority police and paretns at times The characters refer to the police as being paid off to be unfair but still that is no reason to disrespect their authority The graphics are good the book contains steps to doing skateboard tricks as well To me it might be hard to follow once you put the book down but then again I am not a skateboarder A follow up at the end of the book with graphics might make it easier to follow once you complete the reading The story centers on a skateboard bully

W to ollie and do a 50 50 grind Bounce and his friends also have to avoid the skate park goons and take on the outlaw. It was not only a good book but it also had information about skateboarding
