Submitter: Ever since I found this on a weeding truck, I’ve been clinging to the belief that this gem from 1979 has stayed in the collection because of its obvious humor value and not, say, its value as an actual book. I do enjoy imagining the photo shoot that Ann-Victoria Phillips went through and that this is the shot that screamed “cover.” I know that the cover model is the author because of the handy arrow! The additional page displays the enthusiasm for roller skating found throughout the book.
Holly: Good grief, people, weed your roller skating books! If your town has an active roller rink or some other reason for roller skating books, at least update them.
