I Want to be in The Show

Young Tristan dreams of playing in the NHL,"The Show", and he won't let his crippled foot stop him. This is an encouraging story of determination and friendship, set against the annual Limestone Classic hockey tournament in Kingston, Ont.

"Tristan was born to a loving and supportive family in Kingston,  Ontario. A slight physical anomaly caused one of Tristan's feet to turn inward, requiring him to wear a brace. From an early age, Tristan loved playing hockey with his friends and, like many children, dreamed of playing in the NHL. He worked very hard, day and  night, night an day until he finally made it to "The Show." As an adult, Tristan returns to Kingston to return the goodwill and generosity that was given to him. This is a heartwarming,  contemporary story of a First Nations family. The black and white illustrations do a fine job of bringing the story to life, though they have a bit too much shading which makes the book visually a bit dark. Even so, this is likely to be a favorite with young readers." - Oyate
