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.
