Imagine playing goal during the Stanley Cup playoffs! Imagine playing hockey for Team Canada! Imagine winning! Daniel liked dreaming; if only life were more like his dreams...

Daniel plays goal for a junior team and lately they've been losing. Then one day the man who drives the ice-cleaning machine invited Daniel to do something special: to step inside his dream machine...and what happened there was truly magical!

Mr. Zamboni's Dream Machine is an enchanting story about the power of children's imagination.
