Did you ever get to your hockey game and realize you'd forgotten a skate? That’s precisely what happens in Crosby and Me, a picturebook for children. Of course, Dad hits the roof because he wants his son to be the next Sidney Crosby, and he knows that by the time he drives all the way home and back, the game will be over. Mom reminds Dad that it was he who forgot the skate. They're just on their way out the door when Suzy comes to the rescue with her skates and the son gets to play after all. After the game, Dad is proud, Mom is glad, and Crosby, the family mutt, is full of pizza. And the boy? He tells his parents that he'll continue to play only as long as he's having fun.
