uckster's New Hockey Teammate
, by Lorna Schultz Nicholson and nicely illustrated by Kelly Findley, is fourth in the
series, aimed at young hockey players and fans (ages 4 to 8).
fter Team Canada loses a game (in which poor Francois constantly coughs and sniffles), Puckster spots a panda bear practicing off to the side of the stands. Puckster persuades a nervous Yuan to join the team. They all encourage him to give it his best try. When he actually scores, Yuan agrees that '
Hockey is fun!
' As usual in the series, there is more than one sports lesson to be learned from the story (summarized in
at the back).
here's a fair amount of text in a picture book for younger readers, and in a smaller print than usual, but this will probably not deter small players and their parents from enjoying this inexpensive volume together.
