    1. I liked this than I thought I would while I appreciate what Orca publishing tries to do publish short books in the hopes of luring in reluctant readers they re still not my favourite so I wasn t expecting much here I found myself enjoying learning about life in the Northwestern Territories though I m also not a hockey person, but the big game at the end of the book, while simply written, managed to convey excitement and I can see young readers especially ones who enjoy hockey getting caught up [...]


    2.
