    A reviewer

    I really liked reading this book because Mario Lemieux is my idol and my favorite hockey player. I enjoyed reading about his life and his amazing hockey career. Mario Lemieux was born in Ville Emard, Montreal,Canada in 1965 and started playing hockey with his brothers at the age of three. They played in the basement using wooden spoons for sticks and bottle caps for pucks. He started playing organized hockey at the age of nine for the Ville Emard Hurricanes. He was not only a good skater and shooter but he also had great vision and hockey instincts and quickly became one of the best young players in Quebec. The best young hockey players in Canada are selected to play Major Junior hockey and at the age of 16 Mario was asked to join the Laval Voisins for the '81-'82 season. To do this, Mario dropped out of high school in 10th grade. His parents let him do this because his older brother Allain did the same thing and was drafted by the NHL's St. Louis Blues. Mario worked very hard and even took English lessons because he knew he wanted to become a professinal hockey player like his brother and might have to play in the USA. Mario wanted to be the greatest hockey player ever and chose his new number, 66, because it was Wayne Gretzky's number turned upside down (99). Mario was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins for the '84-'85 season at the age of 18. Pittsburgh was the only team Mario ever played for and was very successful there. He won back-to-back Stanley Cups in '90-'91 and '91-'92, was a member of the All-Star team 9 times, and MVP of both Stanley Cup championships. He loved the Penguins so much that when they went bankrupt, he bought the team and promised to keep them in Pittsburgh. He also won a Gold Medal in the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics but he played for Canada not the USA. Mario Lemieux is one of the greatest players in hockey history and he became that because of his hard work and efforts. He always tried his best and never gave up. Le Mieux mean 'the best' in French and he truly was the best.
