The Magic Hockey Stick (Picture Puffins)

Product DescriptionDo you believe in magic? Tracy does. When she starts using Wayne Gretzky’s hockey stick, won by her parents at a charity auction, she suddenly becomes the best player on her hockey team. She hasn’t become a better player overnight-it’s the magic of The Great One’s stick! But while Tracy’s star is on the rise, Wayne’s is steadily dropping. He’s in the greatest slump of his career. Tracy knows that Wayne needs his magic stick back, but she needs it, too. The question is: Who needs it more? This heartfelt story, with its clever rhyme and vibrant artwork, will delight young readers.

“Even children who have no knowledge of hockey will be entertained by this book and impressed by its message. Maloney and Zekauskas have scored a winning goal with this one.” (School Library Journal)
