Format: Hardcover
I firsr read The Flying Hockey Stick when I was six years old. My copy (recently lost, much to my dismay) was signed by my Mom and was given to me for my birthday. Anyway, the book is an adventrure story about a kid named Barnaby Jones who wants to fly. After trying MANY home made contraptions (many of which are pictured on the inside jacket cover), he comes up with one that works. A hockey stick, and umbrella and an electric fan, all taped together - thus the title of the book.

Now it gets fun. Barnaby goes off on a series of adventures (using a VERY long extension cord!) and helps strangers in trouble. He rescues a woman from a fire, a captain from a sinking ship and an exporer from a pride of hungry lions (conveniently distracted by a couple of bags of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!), then takes them all home.

Unlike most children's books, which would have ended there, The Flying Hockey Stick has a wonderful suprise ending.

This is one of my all time favorite children's books and I'm hoping that Amazon can get me another copy since mine disappeared during one of my moves. My son is only 1 year old, but when he's old enough to read, I want him to have a copy of this book.

If you ever wanted to read a remarkable book that will entise your imagination. This is the book. I remember reading this book every evening as a child. Barnaby Jones and his adventure always made my mind wonder and made me think of what I could invent. If your looking to make your child's creativity shine through then this is the book for you.

This delightful story consistently brings instant smiles to the faces of young children. Jolly Rodger Bradfield's masterful storytelling ability captures the undivided attention of listeners/readers. Over my past 33 years as an educator, I have shared this book with literally thousands of children. The response is always the same, joy!

I read this book along with Benjamin Dilley's Thirsty Camel and Pickel Chiffon Pie when I was little. These are the best kids books and promote imagination and fun. I would recommend these to any parent for their child. You can't go wrong with these books!

My kids (3 & 6 yrs old) love this book! We have a TON of books at our house and this one gets read over and over again. The illustrations are awesome--fun for all of us to stare at and study. (I also love the length of this book--substance without being so wordy that I dread requests to read it before bed!) I'm going to buy more copies to have on hand as birthday presents--I'd say it's ideal for girls or boys ages 2-7. Such a fantastic book to fuel the imagination of little ones!

I grew up on Jolly Roger Bradfield, and I am so delighted that these lovely, fanciful books are available again. I bought this one recently and read it to my preschool students, and they were enchanted.

Sign of how things have changed, though - we had a little chat first about plugging in fans, and how that was a task for mom or dad! I didn't want to get any concerned notes from home about encouraging kids to play with appliances. :)

My wife and I read The Flying Hockey Stick (as well The Pickle Chiffon Pie) over and over to our four kids during the 80s. We give Bradfield's books to friends when they have children. Brilliantly written and illustrated. Recently, we gave all of our now grown children copies as reminder of their childhood. You cannot go wrong with Bradfield's childrens books.

My mom read this book to me and my brother as kids. We loved it so much the binding broke. After finding it again I was able to share it with my daughter. It inspired her to try to build a flying machine of her own. The illustrations are fantastic and the writing has withstood the test of time. Classic!
