The Newbery Challenge: Roller Skates

I really wanted to fly to New York City to film my Roller Skates video. Oh well, I'll settle for Aurora, Illinois.

Click here to watch Colby Sharp's video.

Travis Jonker was the king of the now defunct Picnik. He used it to design the cover on the right. (Travis, did you find an adequate replacement?)

Borrow Roller Skates from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.


  1. I thought for sure you would be skating in this video. :) I haven't reached this one yet. I was thinking it was in the series by Noel Streatfeild but then realized that was Skating Shoes. Will look forward to it.

  2. I think I am going to have to bust out my skates sometime this week. I have been thinking about doing it ever since we read this book. I used to hang out at the roller rink a ton in elementary school.

  3. I planned on roller skating during the video. I talked myself out of it, though.
