Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Travis Lindsay, his best friend, Nish, and all their pals on the Screech Owls hockey team, are on their way to New York for an international peewee tournament. Excitement builds in the team van on the way to Lake Placid. First there are the entertaining antics of their trainer, Mr. Dillinger - then there's the prospect of playing on an Olympic rink, in a huge arena, knowing there will be scouts in the stands.

But they have barely arrived when things start to go wrong. Their star center, Sarah, plays badly from lack of sleep. Next Travis gets knocked down in the street. And then someone starts tampering with equipment. It looks as if someone is trying to sabotage the Screech Owls. But who? And why? And can Travis and the others stop the destruction before the decisive game of the tournament?

Synopsis:

There is fast-paced adventure, colourful settings, and plenty of thrilling hockey action in this exciting relaunch of the much-loved Screech Owls series.
