Editorial Reviews

Canadian Book Review Annual
*no details*
Children's Literature - J. H. Diehl
Johnny Maverick and his friend Stu Duncan live in the small town of Howling where they play on the hockey team, the Howling Timberwolves. Tom Morgan, the new kid in the town, is a serious hockey player and star scorer. Tom is a lot more focused on the game than on befriending his new teammates. He bullies players like Stu, the good-humored, overweight math whiz who knows he has little talent for hockey but plays anyway. Stu endures Tom's merciless insults, but after a while they have an effect, and Stu starts to think maybe he should just quit the team. Then Johnny dreams up a scheme that both respects Tom Morgan and ultimately puts him in his place. Johnny persuades Stu to go along with the plan, and the outcome is positive for everyone. The author hits many notes just right. There is plenty of mean banter between Tom, Johnny, and Stu, plenty of action, and a cleverly plotted resolution. The title is part of this Canadian publisher's "Echoes" series for ages 7 to 9. At 54 pages, with 15 black and white illustrations, the book is also suitable and recommended for a young, accelerated reader or an older, reluctant one.
