At last - Canada's favourite storyteller takes on Canada's most beloved pastime!

Ciara is tired of hauling her hockey gear across town to play on the rink. It makes no sense-there is a perfectly good frozen river in her own backyard! But her dad says it's too jagged, and her mom says it's too bumpy, and her older sisters don't see why she can't keep going all the way across town, just like they did. But Ciara won't let anybody stop her. And with a little help from the neighbourhood, she knows that her team, the River Rink Rats, will finally win a game on their own brand new rink.

In classic Robert Munsch style, this warm fun story of community and hockey takes a hilarious turn. With the excitement and pace of a real hockey match, the River Rink Rats play their final game on their new rink. The pressure is on; the crowd is watching; Ciara has the puck; the crowd keeps watching; the ice starts to...CRACK!; Ciara keeps playing; the ice starts to drift; the crowd starts running; Ciara shoots to SCORE and-

You can be sure that no matter how the game ends, there will be hot chocolate!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Canadian book The thing that bothered me was that there was a bear in the story during the winter - kids know that bears hibernate in the winter.

From the Author

How this story came to be:"I was visiting the Northwest Territories and this kind man from Hay River lent me his truck so I wouldn't get stuck while driving around. When I got back to his home to return the truck, his daughter Ciara was there all ready for a hockey game-she was in her team uniform and her mom was going to drive her all the way across town to the rink.I asked them why there wasn't a rink on the river right near their house. Ciara's dad explained that the river ice was a mess. But Ciara agree that it would be nice to play on a rink close by.Right then a story came into my head! I wrote it on my plane ride to Edmonton, sent it to Ciara, and asked if she wanted to be in a book."- Robert Munsch
