This book is a category-killer, in that it's not easily confined to any category. I'm a non-surfing 40 year old, and I love this book! It's an entertaining and lively read - and the illustrations are done with vivid, unusual colors. My nephew lives in Portland Oregon, and he was captivated all afternoon, read the book straight through, didn't speak to anyone until he was done. Then a sly smile accompanied his "it was good!" This, folks, is high praise indeed. I've passed it on to other family members, and we all look forward to the continuing adventures of the Surf Clowns. Authors? We DO hope there are more in store for us!
Better than Pokeman!

Surf Clowns definitely fit the bill for my almost eleven year old - tired of Pokeman, waiting for more Harry Potter and too cool for most kid-oriented chapter books, my skateboarding, snowboarding preteen really enjoyed this tale. When you have to nag them to turn out their reading light again and again to go to sleep, you know the book has found its target!
