Ryan loves to play hockey. Every year, his dad makes a rink in the backyard, and Ryan plays with his brother Jason and practises for his team. But Ryan is small for his age and tends to get pushed around. He really wants to make the select team this year, but has to practise extra hard to get through the tryout. Ryan follows the Edmonton Oilers and his hero is Wayne Gretzky. Gretzky is small, too, but he sure can skate and score. And he is leading the Oilers in the Stanley Cup finals against the reigning champs, the New York Islanders. Inspired by Gretzky's example, Ryan makes the select team-and his hero leads the Oilers to Edmonton's first ever Cup win! Gretzky's Game is the fifth in the bestselling Hockey Heroes series from Mike Leonettii.Ages 5 and up

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~
