Part of The Hockey Heroes series, Gretzky's Game tells the story of a young boy who loves to play hockey. Because he's small for his age, he's always getting pushed around by the other players. However, he's determined to make the team -- even though it means a lot of extra practice just to pass the tryout. Throughout the long hours at the rink, the thrilling exploits of his hero, Wayne Gretzky, who is leading the Edmonton Oilers to their first-ever Stanley Cup, inspire him to keep trying. Hockey's golden age is recalled in vivid detail in this tale of hard work, determination, and the importance of holding on to one's dreams.

Edmonton may not be your favorite team, but we all know what it feels like to have a goal insight and succeed. This story validates that hard work and practice, practice, practice is the best way to achieve that goal. Enjoyable book for those who enjoy "the journey" too. m~
