Giant Peter has challenged Alex to see who the best hockey player in the world is, and none of Alex's friends will help him. The large illustrations convey what the text says in a funny manner, and occasionally take on a graphic novel slant with word bubbles. The fear of Alex's friends is understandable, and young readers may relate to the extreme conclusions Alex comes to before the game. Those with a more developed sense of the world, however, will likely find the hyperbole unbelievable. The solution to the problem is creative, but in a way that many other hockey books have already used. For fans of hockey only, and even then, there are better books out there.
