On one of many car rides to an early morning hockey practice, I asked my 4 year old son what type of book he may like for a Christmas present, he said he wanted a hockey book and a superhero book. I replied that he’d have to choose one or the other since there weren’t any books about a hockey superhero. That sparked an idea and subsequent conversations with an excellent author and a very talented illustrator. Several months later, Hockeyboy was published.
Hockeyboy is a children’s book for kids between 3 and 6 years of age. It’s about a typical boy who becomes a hero for his town when an evil villain threatens to ruin their great game of hockey. It’s short, exciting, funny and honoring to our game. It’s the type of book that kids ask to read over and over again. It’s the type of book that will get young kids excited about reading.
