Book Description

May 4 2010 Lorimer Recordbooks
Most people recognize hockey superstar Bobby Clarke as the tough guy with the toothless grin. This fast-paced and energetic new book tells the story of Clarke's fights on and off the ice -- not with rival hockey players, but with diabetes. Long-time sports editor Nicole Mortillaro examines how Bobby was almost shunned from the league because of the disease, and recounts the impact of the important medical discoveries made about the disease since his time. [Fry Reading Level - 4.1]

Product Description

Review

Mortillaro's breezy, fact-filled biography of hockey legend Bobby Clarke is just the thing for hockey-crazed reluctant readers... Kids who like "infotainment" will be drawn to this book as it reads like a novel but includes fact boxes, photographs and a glossary. The author keeps her chapters short, makes good use of cliff-hangers, and manages to keep her descriptions of hockey games and plays exciting and easy to picture. Even kids who are not that keen on hockey will find the figure of Clarke an interesting subject. Something to Prove is a good fit for collections of easy-to-read, but substantial biographies, and will be enjoyed by young hockey fans.

I think it was a little to short even for young readers it gave you a lot of facts but not enough of a story.
