9780887769443: Splinters

Cindy Winters loves to play hockey. When her family's basement apartment is flooded and the floor freezes, she's even happy to skate on the concrete. Her parents are too poor to enroll her in a league, but she's resourceful and does odd jobs until she has earned enough money to play. Armed with her mother's old equipment, she is thrilled to join a team. But her happiness doesn't last long. Among her teammates are the horrible Blister Sisters. They make her life miserable. And worse, Cindy's sidelined by the coach, who just happens to be Mrs. Blister. It looks like she'll be spending the season cleaning equipment, instead of playing on the ice. Cindy's luck changes when her Fairy Goaltender appears and saves the day. With its great good humor and hilarious illustrations, Kevin Sylvester's Splinters is bound to become a favorite.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-2–The Cinderella story plus hockey equals a new twist on an old favorite. Cindy is a destitute but excellent hockey player who can't catch a break. When she finally saves enough money to join a league, it's dominated by two evil sisters and their mother, the coach. They keep Cindy on the bench and nickname her "Splinters." When the acclaimed coach Charmaine Prince holds tryouts for the All-Star team, Cindy needs the help of her Fairy Goaltender to get to the rink on time on a new Zamboni. As she races away before the final bell rings, she loses her golden skate. In true Cinderella style, she is reunited with the skate, makes the team, and plays hockey happily ever after. The watercolor and pencil illustrations depict the actions and emotions of the characters perfectly. The facial expressions are spot-on. There is a lot of text in this tale, but the art keeps it from being overwhelming. This reworking of a classic tale has a few missed shots but overall it meets its goal in being clever.Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH
