All Bernard Jones wanted to do while staying with his grandparents for the summer in Elmdale, his father's childhood hometown, was work on his basketball skills.When Bernard excitedly enters a team into the Annual Elmdale Park Basketball Tournament, he's shocked to discover that the future of the park is at stake.The town of Elmdale hasn't won the tournament in 20 years, and Victor Franco, a ruthless millionaire, is planning to shut down the annual tournament for good so that he can turn the historic Elmdale Park into a landfill for his own profit.It can all be stopped ifBernard and his team, the Elmdale Warriors,win the tournament this year.Can the courageous Bernard and his fun and wacky crew defeat their Oakdale rivals and save the historic Park? This was such an enjoyable read! I love the nice, upbeat story, the realistic characters, and the fantastic humor. Bernard is such a relatable character, and he's a great true-to-life role model. Readers are sure to appreciate the basketball lingo, his love of the game, and his determination to fight the good fight.- KIRKUS Reviews The Hoop Kid from Elmdale Park is available onAmazon: http://www.amazon.com/The-Hoop-Kid-Elmdale-Park/dp/0986059307 For over a decade Teko Bernard worked as a creative director and graphic designer in the sports industry where he developed brand identities, marketing communications and apparel graphics for nationally recognized brands like ESPN and X Games.After an exciting career in the sports industry, Teko set out to pursue his dream of creating Elmdale Park, a kid's entertainment brand that produces middle grade books & activewear.
