Praise

One of BookRiot‘s 50 Must-Read Canadian Children’s and YA Books

PRAISE FOR The Hockey Sweater:

“Stephen Harper said the book ‘still touches the hearts of Canadian hockey fans, young and old.’ . . . Justin Trudeau, who would become Prime Minister, called it ‘an iconic depiction of a truly Canadian experience.’” —Roy Macgregor, Globe and Mail

“It’s a classic. . . . You can’t really be a Canadian and not read it. It’s become part of our cultural lexicon.” —Canadian Children’s Book News

“. . . not only sweet and funny, but a wise parable about Quebec and English Canada.” —Toronto Star

“. . . Roch Carrier’s timeless book about a boy’s catalogue snafu resonated across this hockey-mad country–because who didn’t understand the horror of receiving the enemy’s hockey sweater in the mail?” —Faceoff.com

“[A] true-life parable woven so deeply into the national fabric that it’s hard to conceive of a time when it wasn’t there.” –Toronto Sun
