It's tough being the new kid at Carver Elementary. Gavin had lots of friends at his old school, but the kidsand#160;here don't even know that he's pretty good at skateboarding, or how awesome he is at soccer.and#160;And when hisand#160;classmate Richard comes over and the boys end upand#160;in trouble, not only does Gavin risk losing his one new friend, he has to take care ofand#160;his great aunt Myrtle's horrible little dog as punishment.
To make matters worse, Gavin seems to have attracted the attention of the school bully.and#160;Will he be able toand#160;avoid getting poundedand#160;at the skate park?and#160;And how is heand#160;ever going to prove he's cooland#160;withand#160;a yappy little Pomeranian wearing a pink bow at his side?

Synopsis:

From the creators of the acclaimed Nikki and Deja stories, the first book in a charming and funny new series featuring the boys of Carver Elementary, a lost dog, a thieving bully, an annoying big sister, and skateboarding.

Synopsis:

Can EllRay master the moves in time to win his friend back?

EllRay Jakes may be the shortest kid in his class, and he may get into trouble from time to time, but he can always count on his best friends Kevin and Corey. But lately, Kevin has been skateboarding with the meanest boy in class. Could EllRay be losing one of his friends?

Not giving up without a fight, EllRay asks his older neighbor to show him a few jaw-dropping skateboard moves—like ollies and kickflips. EllRay must learn as many tricks as he can before the secret boys-only third grade skate-off. But will it be enough?

Synopsis:

EllRay Jakes is tired of being bullied by fellow classmate Jared Matthews. But when EllRay tries to defend himself, he winds up in trouble. Then his dad offers him a deal: If he stays out of trouble for one week, they'll go to Disneyland! EllRay says he can do it. But saying it and doing it are two very different things.
