Synopsis: An avid fan of the Detroit Red Wings particularly their great star forward Gordie Howe Charlie plays in his neighborhood league but worries that he may not have what it takes. After reading a book by Howe, Charlie starts thinking there may be other ways to be involved in hockey. A chance meeting with broadcaster Foster Hewitt convinces him to try his hand at play-by-play announcing. Has he discovered his niche? Brilliantly illustrated by Greg Banning, and featuring league stars like Howe and Hewitt, this lively, inspiring book speaks eloquently of one boy’s determination to find a place in the sport he loves.
