Being a proud Montrealer and quite use to all things hockey! This book was an absolute joy to read and enjoy! Hockey Talk is all about hockey - from mini biographies on somce of the well known broadcasters to all things you might want to know about hockey.

This book is aimed at a younger audience so is constructed in a manner that will keep their attention. Loaded with cute pictures and caricatures - its a fun, fun trip through the world of hockey.

For those who are into fun facts and stats, you will also love this book and, of course, mention of MY team is frequently done as Montreal practically invented the sport of hockey - although we won't be seeing any Stanley Cups this year!

This book is a joy and great for all the young sports lover.

About this book

Wiki

"Dictionaries are normally not the stuff of middle schoolers recreational reading, but, when it's a dictionary of hockey terms and phrases, then it becomes much more acceptable to be seen with such a "reference" book. . . Heeley's cartoon-like illustrations, generously scattered throughout the book, provide a humourous, often literal, interpretation of Goldner's definitions.
Highly Recommended."
--CM Magazine

"Goldner covers more than 300 such terms, employing a straightforward dictionary format. His writing is clear and entertaining. . . Hockey Talk is extremely readable, and entertaining enough to hold a young readers attention."
