Grade 1-3-Brady Brady thinks about nothing but hockey, and as a result his family must call out his name "twice to get his attention." In Great Rink, he works hard to build a skating rink in his backyard and saves the day by providing a place to play when the power fails at the gym before a big game. In Runaway Goalie, his unflinching belief in his friend allows Chester to make the move that wins the game. The cartoon illustrations in both titles are rendered in rich jewel tones with friendly faced characters. These volumes convey a positive view of the sport and the enthusiasm of its players, and will be popular with hockey fans.
