Description

This colourful picture book is based on the author's seven-year-old son and his capacity to incorporate hockey into all that he does: eating, drawing, music, visits with friends, sleeping and stories. This book has a different feel from her previous books, with playful watercolour and ink images of characters and scenes, sometimes three or four to a page, and no complete backgrounds – just light-hearted visual vignettes that enhance the verse with humour and coziness. It will be an approachable book for kids, and heart-warming for any adult involved in hockey culture.
