The Greatest GoalBook - 2001
Here is an enduring classic for all hockey fans, young and old. The Greatest Goal teams up the successful author-illustrator team of Leonetti and Thompson, collaborators on the bestselling My Leafs Sweater, in a heartwarming children's picture book about one of the most exciting moments in hockey history: the 1972 world hockey showdown between Team Canada and the Soviet Union. This tale, about a key moment in sports history as seen through the eyes of a young boy, is about everyday heroes and the stuff they're made of. Wonderful, evocative and colourful illustrations are included, along with information at the back of the book about the historic 1972 Canada-Soviet Union series.
