My 8 year old LOVED this book! He is a hockey super fan and also likes the fun-to-read "Who Is" series. This one is, by far, his favorite (Who Is Jackie Robinson is a close 2nd). They are well-written, interesting books that even I, an adult and former elementary school teacher, enjoy reading with him. There are so many things to stop and talk about if you want to have deeper discussions, and they also do well on their own without any talk. The authors clearly understand how to relate adult figures to younger children. Our only gripe is that there is no "Who is Bobby Orr". Check it out!
About the Author Gail Herman has written several biographies for young readers, including Who Was Davy Crockett? and Who Was Jackie Robinson?

My son loves the book and is a huge fan of Wayne Gretzky to the point of having his hockey jersy the same number as Wayne’s. -Read Reviews-
Best Mommy/ Son time night reading in a long time. we would read a chapter a night and he would LOVE going to bed to hear more. Followed up with a video documentary on WG and he is in AWE. Loves the "Lady Bing" award!
