When the Habs and the Leafs face off in an exhibition game, Freddy is beside himself with excitement. He has a secret mission to find Billy Binkle, the most famous hockey player of all time. Although Freddy's dad gently suggests that Billy Binkle may not be at the game, Freddy is not discouraged. "He's going to sign my stick, too!" he says. Is Billy Binkle really at the game? And will Freddy find him? This charming adventure (with a surprise ending) will have thousands of fans cheering for our Freddy.
CM Magazine - June 24, 2011
"Complementing the heightened level of anticipation throughout the story, Hilda Rose's illustrations boldly and colourfully establish a sense of playfulness that captivates readers. Further, the fast-paced nature of Freddy's adventure matches the exhilaration and thrill of the hockey game itself...Highly Recommended."
Resource Links - April 1, 2011
"The author uses words associated with hockey and hockey games to add excitement and authenticity to the story."
