Book Description

Sept. 14 2007
Clancy with the Puck is a delightful Canadian twist on the classic American baseball story "Casey at the Bat," with a bit of Roch Carrier's The Hockey Sweater added for good measure. The hapless but heroic Clancy has a chance to win the hearts of hometown fans and take home the Stanley Cup. But our hero blows it in the final period: instead of scoring the game-winning goal, Clancy misses and ends up driving the Zamboni! This engaging children's hockey story is a creative re-telling of the classic baseball poem "Casey at the Bat." Clancy with the Puck is a hilarious and nostalgic tale of hockey hubris. The hardcover book includes a DVD with an animated short narrated by the legendary Bob Cole, whose Hockey Night in Canada play-by-play is heard by millions of hockey fans weekly. Clancy is enhanced by the fabulous full-colour artwork of animator Chris Mizzoni. Mizzoni has styled his work to reflect the original drawings on the O-Pee-Chee hockey cards, and the book's classic retro look will appeal to hockey fans of all ages. The animated short will be broadcast nationwide by Studio B Productions. Ages 3-8

5.0 out of 5 stars Dirty Thirties hockey brought to rhyming life Dec 19 2007
Hockey fans will be pleased to see Clancy With the Puck under the tree?even after they get to the end and discover that the nail-biting ending isn't a happy one. It's the final game of the Stanley Cup playoffs, and the Hogtown Maple Buds are down 3?4, with four seconds on the buzzer, when their saviour appears: "Clancy strode across the ice; the crowd roared overhead." Animator Chris Mizzoni brings Dirty Thirties hockey to life with a helmetless Clancy taking the final penalty shot. "Down came his stick with fearsome might, a blur of puck and snow." Does he tie up the game? Well, if you've read "Casey at the Bat" you'll know how this ends, but look at the bright side: at least it's only Hogtown. Note: purchase price includes an animated short on DVD by author Mizzoni.
