Korman and hockey - two of Canada's favourites make for one hilarious comedy series!

It was a classic Cinderella story. . .the unwelcome step-child of the Slapshot hockey league, the Mars Health Food Stars, had played well enough to keep their team in the league. It's just too bad that the road to the play-offs leads directly to Steve Stapleton. The Oilers' new centre has skills, strength. . .and a beard? There's no way this teenager belongs in an elementary league, and Chipmunk will do anything to uncover the truth. Unfortunately, Chipmunk has no proof to back up his claims.

Editorial Reviews

?The concept is nothing new. . .taking a bunch of misfits and turning them into champions was common story fodder even before the Bad News Bears came along, and Gordon has visited this ground before with the Zucchini Warriors and the Toilet Paper Tigers. But with the Slapshots series, he's created some great new characters and put them into a game he really cares about, and it shows in the reading." - From the official Gordon Korman website
