Johnny Maverick and his friends Tom and Stu want to win the prizes donated for their hockey team's Valentine's Day dance fundraiser. Whoever wins the dance contest takes home all the prizes, one of which is a graphite hockey stick. When the boys learn that Connie, the new girl in Howling, is a great dancer, they each want her as their dance partner. But they don't think about asking her to go with them until it's too late. And as usual, things don't turn out as planned for Johnny and his friends.

Tacoma School District #10 - January 5, 2012
"This is a great early chapter book and the rivalry and sports related action will engage boy readers."
CM Magazine - February 12, 2010
"Flagpoles, toilet water, plungers and arm farting may not win the fair Connie's heart, but these antics will endear Timberwolf Rivals to the young boy reader. Recommended."
