Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The ball hit the road and the game was on.

Once the game started, time stopped for me. For all

of us.

We played. And played. And played.

And were they good I never saw a pro handle a puck the way these kids handled an old red ball.

When Etienne takes his cousin out to play street hockey for the first time, he has a lot of explaining to do. Street hockey is nothing like ice hockey. Everyone has to wear a No. 9 Canadiens hockey sweater, but beyond that, the game has more to do with a fun day in the snow than with winning or losing. Etienne's cousin comes away with a talisman and a story worth passing on.

David Bouchard grew up on the prairies, where he lived and breathed street hockey. Every detail of That's Hockey, from Mop and Tooth to the mugs of hot chocolate, is drawn from experience.

In That's Hockey, David Bouchard and illustrator Dean Griffiths team up for the second time. Dean brings the same lively playfulness to street hockey here that he brought to a Harley-riding tooth fairy in David Bouchard's Fairy.
