Fun for the whole family, Playground and Hobby Squad encourage a return to outdoor activities and hands-on hobbies through the use of timeless and, in some cases, forgotten childhood playground games, unplugged/hands-on hobbies, and healthier eating. Playground and Hobby Squad send the subtle message to kids, moms and dads alike to rediscover what it means to simply have fun getting dirty on the playground of life!

Felix loves vegetables more than most little boys. On his first day at a new school, Felix eats a glowing stalk of broccoli in the Valley Village Elementary School’s Organic Garden that happens to be adjacent to the school’s playground. Felix is imbued with the powers of the Playground. From now on, any playground game is far more than a game when Felix plays.

Principal Strict is Felix's nemesis and he's looking for a new informant/hall monitor. He has the ability to give ice cream headaches, and too much candy stomach aches to anyone who stands in his way. Felix and Principal Strict slug it out on the playground with the happiness of all the students at Valley Village Elementary in the balance.

“When I met Adam Rose, we became fast friends due to our mutual love of comics. We were both working on personal projects, hoping some day to not just enjoy and consume comics, but to produce them, as well. While I am still noodling away on mine, Adam has, through much time, love, blood, sweat, and tears, brought his first project into the world. With ”Playground: Attack of the Gurgle Bots”, he and artist Charles Toefield have created a first issue with punchy art, engaging characters, and a world to build on. It’s a comic book they should be proud of, and I’m looking forward to reading issue number two and beyond!”

“When I was a kid, I wanted to be awesome. With super- powers. I achieved that goal. Read this book, and you might, too.”

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
