For fifty years the animals on Stolski's farm have played their hearts out for the Stolski Cup -- the dream of every hockey team all over the northland. And every year the Farm Team has lost to the nastiest, smelliest, snarlingest bunch of varmints ever to don skates -- the Bush League Bandits.? As soon as the puck drops for this year's playoff game, the Bandits, playing as dirty as ever, take an early lead. A Bandit porcupine named Needles starts ramming Farm Team players, while the weasels slash and spear. But the Farm Team's goalie Big George blocks some tough shots, while Billy the goat and Vera the goose net three goals to tie things up. Then the Bandits bring in a bruiser of a substitute player so big and mean that these plucky underdogs could be in for a serious mauling. From the award-winning team of Linda Bailey and Bill Slavin and packed with on-ice action and laughs, this is the picture book hockey fans of every age have been waiting for.

About the Author:

Linda Bailey is an award-winning author of many books for children, including Goodnight Sweet Pig, Stanley's Party, the Stevie Diamond Mysteries, and the Good Times Travel Agency series. She lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.

From Booklist:

Up north on Farmer Stolski's farm, winter lasts a long, long time. For the barnyard animals, the season's saving grace is hockey. Their goal is always the same: to win the Stolski Cup, a cracked, gold-rimmed teacup awarded to the winner of their annual game against the Bush League Bandits. After losing for 50 years straight, the Farm Team practices hard for the Big Game, but their chances are slim as they face the Bandits, who play dirty, smell foul, and intimidate the ref. Every child who has watched a bigger, brawnier opposing team take the field will feel for the plucky Farm Team. Bailey's story reads aloud well, while Slavin's artwork captures its drama and humor in a series of action-filled acrylic paintings. Varied visual approaches keep the illustrations fresh and help viewers focus on key elements in the scenes. This entertaining Canadian picture book is one of the few about hockey, a sport with many young players and fans on both sides of the border. Carolyn Phelan
