REVIEW:
When you miss hockey, what else is there to do but read a book on hockey facts.
I'm glad I did too!
I've been watching hockey for most of my life. I have been a Toronto Maple Leaf fan since 1992. Beyond the Leafs, I didn't really know much about any other players or teams. I may have heard of stars like Terry Sawchuck, but I really knew nothing about him.
This book changed all of that.
I learned so much about certain players, and teams, including the para-olympic hockey sport of sled hockey.
Shows you really are never too old to learn something new about something you love.
A great book for fans!!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
