A lively hockey and ice dancing picture book in the tradition of "Billy Elliot" and "The Sissy Duckling"
Henry Holton s whole family is hockey mad. Everyone, that is, except Henry. When he holds a hockey stick, Henry becomes a menace to the game and an embarrassment to his sports-minded family. It s not until he sees his first ice dancing performance that Henry realizes there s something he can do on the ice that "doesn t" involve boarding and body checking. Henry is ready to hang up his gear and try on some figure skates, but first he has to convince his hockey-obsessed family to let him follow his own path."
