Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3—Rhyming couplets tell the story of an ice hockey team winning a big game and brother helping brother. When Derek is tripped by a player on the opposing team and receives the penalty shot, Casey takes it to allow his sibling time to recover. The shot creates an overtime situation, and Derek returns to score the winning goal. Hockey jargon abounds, but any sports enthusiast can enjoy this simple tale with basic brotherly concern. The oil-on-canvas illustrations show how the action intensifies as the illustrator uses varying angles and perspectives from high above in the stands looking down at the tops of the players' helmets to close-up side views of facial pain when Derek goes down. One amusing observation is that the distinctive noses on all the characters, including the opposing team, look as if the players are all related in one big extended genetic family. The colorful endpapers show a worker on a Zamboni smoothing the ice, signifying the beginning and the end of the game. Even though the plot is on the thin side, this book will supplement the dearth of hockey picture books.—Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

This book has it all---fast-paced action and amazing illustrations. Casey and Derek on the Ice is packed with all the excitement and unexpected twists and turns of the final, hotly-contested minutes of a real hockey game. My little hockey player loves this story. I love this story

My son loves this story. It keeps you on the edge of your seat hoping that somehow, someway the hockey-playing brothers, Casey and Derek, can help their team snatch victory from the brink of defeat. A must-have book for hockey families or anyone who loves a good "never-say-die" story.

Great book for kids, sentences rhyme in an sing song sort of way. This is my 2 year old son's favorite book for story time.
