Meet Tony Hawk
Imagine playing the Tony Hawk Ride video game with Tony Hawk, the real life pro skateboarder! Well, Scholastic Kid Reporter, Christopher Campbell got to do just that! If it were me, I would have been so nervous, I think I would have tripped over my feet, but Christopher was awesome! In the Kids Press Corps blog, Christopher writes " . . . when Tony showed me how to play his new game, it was a whole new experience to me. I thought I would mess up and fall, but I even did better than Tony himself!" Read the rest of Christopher's article to hear all about his experience meeting Tony Hawk.
While he was here, Tony also stopped by the STACKS. What book series does he recommend for you? Captain Underpants! Watch the video to find out why.
