Praise

“Despite its icy setting, Bradley’s debut imparts a warm, encouraging message to kids feeling out of step with their families’ interests…Equal parts sensitive and comic, it’s a rewarding reminder that there’s more than one way to get in the game.” —Publishers Weekly

“In her first picture book, Bradley tells a well-crafted, satisfying story in which Henry articulates his views,sticks to his guns, and wins in the end.” —Booklist

“Both the illustrations—despite the ice, it has the warmth of pencil-and-wash artwork—and the story have a strong but unmenacing quality, neatly conveying an acceptance of Henry’s inclinations and an appreciation of his talent. It doesn’t matter what you do on the ice, suggests Bradley, just do it with a song in your heart.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Kids will chuckle over the pileup Henry’s slick moves cause in a hockey games, and the protest poster (“Picks!”) he brings to the rink while on strike…Tykes fighting their own ‘I gotta be me’battles, whatever the arena, will surely empathize.”  —BCCB

“This is a wonderful story for students about being different from others; one that also demonstrates the love of family.” —SLC
