  • Short Description
In this picture book, Danny proves that just because his disability won't allow him to wear hockey skates, he still makes a great goalie.
Can Danny prove himself on the ice?

Danny and his friends, Anita, Petou and Marcel, are typical youngsters—hockey mad.

Danny's disability means that he can’t wear skates, but his leather moccasins work just fine and earn him the name “Moccasin Danny.” When a town team is formed, the friends are overjoyed, but only Marcel is picked for the team. Will Danny get the chance to prove that even though he can’t wear a pair of skates, he can still play the game?

Originally released over a decade ago, The Moccasin Goalie is the first of three books in a well-loved series that includes The Final Game and Victory at Paradise Hill.

Author and illustrator William Roy Brownridge is a native of Saskatchewan. Like the hero of his Moccasin Goalie titles, Bill lived for hockey and played goal despite being unable to wear skates. In The Moccasin Goalie, he demonstrates the unique artistic style, the flair for storytelling and the feel for prairie life that have made all three of his volumes perennial favorites. After a successful career as a graphic designer, Bill now devotes himself full time to painting.
