Awards

Winner - Best Books for Kids & Teens - Canadian Children's Book Centre - 2008

"The strength of this book is in the strongly portrayed behaviour of young boys who constantly set up situations in which they can compete. Written to a Grade 3 level vocabulary, the book will appeal to struggling readers who are into hockey."
