The Horn Book Guide

“Action photographs, pictures of old hockey trading cards, and a clean book design present an informative, entertaining package for hockey fans.” —The Horn Book Guide


“Following the same formula they’ve honed in Long Ball (2006), Swish (2009), Touchdown (2009), and Goal! (2010), Stewart and Kennedy take readers on a chatty, photo-studded tour of the art of scoring in the rink. . . . Hockey is creeping up on the big-three team sports in terms of popularity in this country, but since there still aren’t many books covering much beyond the basics, this makes a worthy addition to any sports shelf.” —Booklist
