Wingman on Ice Feb 11, 2006
If you like hockey or are from Canada, Northern U.S., or Northern Europe, you would enjoy this book. Tod is the Average Joe. I think this is a good book for 7-11 year olds. Matt Christopher is a good author for sports books.
Wingman on Ice May 9, 2000
For our book reivew I read the book "Wingman On Ice," by Matt Christoper. It's about a boy named Todd Baker who gets a brand new hockey stick for christmas.Todd doesn't think he deserves the stick because of the way he had been playing,so he puts it in his closet. He practices for a long time, but still does not think he deserves the stick. This story takes place in present time. It was the last day of the season at Mana rink, Todd's game had really improved, now he finally thinks he deserves the stick, but does not have it with him. If you want to know what happens next, you will have to read the exciting book, "Wingaman On Ice." If I had to rate this book from a scale of one to ten, I would give this book an eleven it is so good!

A young boy proves that good things must be earned Sep 12, 1999
We enjoyed reading this story as it addresses a key value: that good things must be earned. At times, however, we felt the boy was a bit too hard on himself. Overall we enjoyed the story alot and if you love hockey it is a good way to learn more about how the game is played.
Good story if your seven year old boy is into hockey. Jan 8, 1999
The book kept the interest of my son from start to finish. The book also provided accurate information on some of the skills used in hockey. My son is looking forward to the day he will be able to read it on his own.
