Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debbie Levy
Hockey player Kyle Parker wants to show his stuff out on the ice, and he gets his chance early, right in chapter One. By chapter Two, he has scored a goal. In chapter Three, he makes a penalty shot. Chapter Five brings an assist. But Kyle's success earns him the enmity of one of his own players. And he really wants to impress his older brother, Caleb, a hockey star who is sidelined with an injury. For the most part, wish fulfillment abounds in this fast-moving story. One of the publisher's "Jake Maddox" sports stories, this easy-to-read hockey story is meant to appeal to reluctant readers, particularly boys. Kyle's adventures on the ice are presented clearly and in accessible language. This book is likely to score points with youngsters who are not confident readers but who know and love the sport of hockey. A glossary, further information about hockey (including a diagram of a hockey ice rink), discussion questions, and writing prompts add interest and usefulness.
