Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-7AOn the Ice with Wayne Gretzky by Matt Christopher (Little, pap. 1997) is a veritable play by play description of the career of hockey's "Great One" from it's beginning through 1996. Gretzky began playing organized hockey at the age of six. Christopher details both the positives and negatives of his swift rise to fame. His phenomenal success led to jealousy from some of his teammates parents and at the age of 14 he was even booed by a crowd of people from his home town. But, hockey always came first in Gretzky's life, and the young man persevered. This perseverance eventually led Gretzky to win nine MVP awards, while leading his teams to four Stanley Cup championships. He holds more than 30 NHL records. This recording details the games that led to all these successes and the disappointments that came along the way are detailed. Well-paced narration is done by Richard M. Davidson.AStephanie Gall Miller, Boulder City Library, NV

Format: Paperback
I thought this book was sweet.I liked it because it told me about his life and how he would play hockey with kids twice his age and still get goals.It said how he would win Stanley Cups and Art Ross trophys(a highest goal scorer of the year).Ialso liked it because it wasn't very long.

This book was very good. It told about Wayne Gretzkys life, his stats and how great he really was. Thats why his nick name is the Great One. He set more than 61 records and has set untouchable ones. This is one of the best sport books ever made.
