Meet the Author

Author and illustrator William Roy Brownridge is a native of Saskatchewan. Like the hero of his Moccasin Goalie titles, Bill lived for hockey and played goal despite being unable to wear skates. In Victory at Paradise Hill, he once again demonstrates the unique artistic style, the flair for storytelling and the feel for prairie life that made the first two volumes perennial favorites. After a successful career as a graphic designer, Bill now devotes himself full time to painting.

    Outstanding

    This book touches on the all exciting game of hockey and how it encompasses a young boys life. It's refreshing and invigorating artistry make you feel the tempuratures and hear the slice of the stick as it slides the puck across the ice. You can almost smell winter.
