The third title in the nationally bestselling series
The Riverton Ice Chips know a thing or two about time travel. With a bit of magic and their beloved hometown rink, teammates Lucas, Edge and Swift have gone back in time to meet Gordie Howe and Sidney Crosby when the hockey greats were just kids. Along the way, the Chips have learned about perseverance, sportsmanship and a true love of the game.
But when a local tournament requires the Chips to split up to help form a district-wide all-girls hockey team, goalie Swift refuses to join forces with Chips rival Beatrice Blitz. The only thing left to do is to time travel once again.
Pretty soon the Chips find themselves smack in the middle of the Calgary Olympics, with a determined young player known as Chicken in desperate need of some new teammates. Lucas, Swift and Swift's sister Sadie have just the spirit Chicken's team needs, and with a lesson from their dedicated new friend-who'll go on to become one of Canada's best-loved Olympic hockey players, Hayley Wickenheiser-they just might change their minds about the game back home.
The Ice Chips and the Invisible Puck is the third title in this beloved and bestselling series by acclaimed authors Roy MacGregor and Kerry MacGregor and illustrator Kim Smith, featuring a vibrant and diverse cast of characters and inspiring hockey greats.
|Review Quote*||"Moments of insight and empathy don't jar or weigh down the story, but are deftly woven into the hometown hockey narrative. . . . It's not surprising how well-crafted the book is given the pedigree of its authors."|
