    1. This is a good book. I wanted to read it because of the title, Hockey Agony. I am a hockey fan, so I enjoy reading book that center around hockey. While this book did have the hockey aspect incorporated into it, it was not the main focal point of this book. The main focal point and lesson of this book was respect, honesty, and sportsmanship. All three good attributes that people should learn and display all of the time. I think good sportsmanship is extremely important whenever you are playing a [...]


    2. As someone who writes message-driven fiction, I always enjoy a book where a reader has a take away they can ponder long after they finish. Such is the case with Hockey Agony. McDine created a character whose bad attitude and habit of bending the rules finally puts him at odds with doing the right thing. Peer pressure is huge at this age, so the author taps into that dilemma and helps tweens realize honesty and integrity are essential to making us successful in life.Julie Hammond provided the art [...]


    3. Hockey Agony, by Donna McDine, and illustrated by Julie Hammond, is one of those short books that grabs your attention. Not because of the title -- though it does put you on notice something painful is coming -- but because of the subject matter. Here’s Larry, a teenager and excellent hockey player, who’s struggling. We see him in pain from a broken leg and in worse pain since he can’t play for his hockey team. Adding insult to injury, Peter, somewhat of a bully and “bad boy,” has take [...]


    4. Larry is down in the dumps since he has been sidelined from Hockey due to his broken leg. When the coach ask Larry to do something special he is pressured by some of his teammates to help the team. He has a huge decision to make when it comes down to the win. He has to decide if he is going to do the right thing or give into the pressure of his peers allow them to cheat. I thought this story was nicely written and shows the real emotions and trauma that a young athlete would feel when having to [...]


    5. My Review: Larry is a Hockey player for his school team. unfortunately, he is unable to play due to a broken leg. Now he has to sit and watch his team play against Peal River without him, he wasn’t happy at all. But his coach decided to give him the responsibility of being in the score box to run the clock. Larry wasn’t pleased and by the tone in his voice his coach wasn’t pleased with his attitude and lack of respect, but he saw potential in Larry. So Larry decided to run the clock during [...]


    6. kachildrensbookreviewsspoWe received this book to give an honest review.This is a really short book with a picture on every other page, which K seemed to enjoy. I thought there would be more of a mention of hockey as it was briefly mentioned and that was all. The lesson within this story and it was a good one for all to know is cheating is wrong no matter who ask you do it. Larry seems to have a bad attitude and has had a hockey injury his coach decides to put him and another player from the oth [...]


    7. I am a fan of Donna McDine's writing. This is a long picture book for elementary students. Ten pages of text and seven full page illustrations by Julie Hammond that perfectly suit the mood of the story. Breaking your leg is never fun. When Larry's hockey coach suggests he needs an attitude improvement and offers him the job of time clock runner for that night's game, Larry is bummed and angry. Especially when he finds out he is sharing the job with a hated member of the other team.What Larry doe [...]


    8. Received in exchange for a honest review.I really enjoyed this. I loved how this had a lesson to learn but it was entertaining as well. We learn what honesty can do and how peer pressure can cause you to almost lose sight of what is right.The drawings are great and show the story as it is unfolding. The writing is excellent and the story is wonderful. You truly get to see what Larry is going through and what he is thinking. Watching him struggle and see things differently and having to decide wh [...]


    9. This is a short & sweet book aimed at 8-12 year olds I would say possibly nearer 8-10 age range.Larry plays in the school hockey team but has broken his leg he seems to have a bit of an attitude problem or lacks discipline, perhaps this is accentuated by the pain & frustration. Anyway he has a 'moment' with the coach whereby he finds out his role in the next game.Peter a classmate hears what Larry has been entrusted to do & tries to sway his decision. Good solid little book which r [...]


    10. I thought is was going to be more a chapter book/novel style book. Even though it is a chapter book it is laid out more like a picture story book in my opinion. It was a fun quick read, but not a typical chapter book for kids.


    11. Ages 8-12 Will Relate and Absorb This Story With Emotion—Take Away A Valuable Learning Message on Peer Pressure, Cheating, Attitudes, Respect, and Honesty!
