  • Short Description
In this picture book, Etienne introduces his city cousin to real hockey—that is, street hockey.
The ball hits the road and it’s game on!

When Etienne takes his cousin out to play street hockey for the first time, he has a lot of explaining to do. Street hockey is nothing like ice hockey—but it's a whole lotta fun!

Originally published over a decade ago, this lively and endearing picture book will introduce a new generation of hockey fans to the magic of real hockey.

Métis author David Bouchard has written many bestselling and award-winning books for children. David grew up on the prairies, where he lived and breathed street hockey. David is a Member of the Order of Canada, and in 2013 he had a public school named after him in Oshawa, Ontario. He currently lives in Victoria, British Columbia, with his wife, daughter and two dogs.

Dean Griffiths is a popular picture-book artist with more than twenty-five titles to his name.
