Some people will do anything to keep playing hockey! Owen and Holly are having a great day whacking the puck around on the frozen lake. . . until Holly smacks the puck past Owen and it falls down an ice-fishing hole. They figure the game is over, until their father remembers the way the old-timers did it. He cuts an inch-thick round from a fallen tree, then gets a fisherman to dip it in the freezing water so it becomes coated with ice. Now that there's a puck, the game can begin again! David Ward's heart warming story will appeal to hockey lovers young and old, and illustrator Brian Deines' timeless artwork brings to life the "love of the game."

Very good story and one I can relate with. Having spent childhood skating on ponds , dugouts and lakes . Can identify with lacing up cold skates and even colder boots . The idea of making pucks out of a poplar tree and freezing them was common back in the day .
