weaved from side to side

Down came his stick with fearsome might,

has a dream to win the Stanley Cup. All he needs is a team, but the Hogtown
Maple Buds arenít the best hockey team. Will Clancy be able to score the
winning goal to win the Stanley Cup? Find out in this Canadian version of
the classic baseball tale, Casey at the Bat.
This book has lots of hockey
in it, so if you like Hockey Night in Canada you will like Clancy with
the Puck. Chris Mizzoni, born in Toronto, has stayed a Toronto Maple
Leafs fan. He is an animator with Studio B Productions, and this is his
first book with Raincoast Books. He has included an ANIMATED SHORT DVD
version of Clancy with the Puck at the back of the book. Perfect for
the young reader still needing help. I think Clancy with the Puck is
good for ages 5 to 8.
I enjoyed Clancy with the
Puck. It was quick and easy to read. It became more interesting only
after a few pages. I think the characters chosen for this book are very
good. My favourite character is Clancy, because he is a good hockey player.
I think the pictures went very well with the words. I was a little
disappointed at the end because I did not expect the story to end the way it
I gave Clancy with the Puck 4 stars.
