Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cynthia Levinson
Young ice hockey fans will immerse themselves in this well-organized book which is filled with photographs, charts and anecdotes. The length of a standard thirty-two page picture book, it opens with a breezy history of professional hockey. Historical and administrative details are consolidated into broad statements, such as "Rules changed." However, details about the action on the ice abound. The nearly page-long description of Wayne Gretzky's season record goal in 1982, includes this explanation: "The Sabres held Gretzky scoreless in the first two periods. But the young player broke out in the third." The next three chapters address hockey's greatest players, greatest teams, and wildest records. Among the last of these is a game that lasted seven hours. Each chapter contains charts of records, such as most goals in a game, most career goaltending shutouts, and other arcane facts that fascinate fans. The book ends with a brief glossary, a list of books and Internet sites for further research, and a handy index. Serious issues such as safety, violence on the ice, and players' alleged drug-taking are not addressed. Reviewer: Cynthia Levinson
