The basic idea is that I would illustrated a cavalcade of animals all performing different skateboarding tricks that all corresponded with a particular letter of the alphabet. It was quite an interesting challenge to be able to match for each letter, but that challenge was half the fun I think. Christina designed some really funky 80s looking page layouts and it all came together very well.
One thing that I made to include was a glossary in the back of the book. It contained descriptions of all the skateboarding tricks and some background info on some of the more obscure animals. I felt that this way there could be a conversation between the reader and the child, without that reader needing a degree in Zoology or the skateboarding pedigree of Tony Hawk.
