Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection of slap shots, high sticks, and toothless grins offers fans everything they love about hockey: its colorful history, legendary players, and enough hard-hitting trivia to occupy even the most avid stat head. The latest title in the new Uncle John's series dedicated to the wide (and weird ) world of sports, Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Shoots and Scores shares the origins of the Coolest Game on Earth, the greatest teams in hockey history, the best (and worst) hockey movies of all time, the Incredible Exploding Zamboni (and those who lived to tell the tale), a rap sheet of hockey arrests, goalies' superstitions (Patrick Roy's conversations with goal posts; Glenn Hall's pre-game gastric cleansing), and much, much more.

Synopsis:

If the world's longest ear hair, a woman whose legs were broken by a flying pig, a college student who got credit for dressing like a lobster and living in a box for three months, and a man who patented a method for determining the sex of spinach plants all ended up in the same place, what would the result be? Why, another edition of the "Bathroom Reader," of course! The series' latest entry is another riotous collection of bizarre news, facts, and fun from all over the world.

Synopsis:

This fascinating collection is sure to bowl over fans of the king of pets, the humble and charming dog. Uncle John helps readers decode their dogs behavior; reveals backstage secrets from the famed Westminster Dog Show; profiles famous folk and their canine companions, as well as daring dog heroes and cartoon-pooch favorites; lists record-breaking mutts from largest and fastest to smartest and oldest; explains how to train a puppy for a career in TV; and even gives the scoop on poop!
