Here is an enduring classic for all hockey fans, young and old. The Greatest Goal teams up the successful author-illustrator team of Leonetti and Thompson, collaborators on the bestselling My Leafs Sweater, in a heartwarming children's picture book about one of the most exciting moments in hockey history: the 1972 world hockey showdown between Team Canada and the Soviet Union. This tale, about a key moment in sports history as seen through the eyes of a young boy, is about everyday heroes and the stuff they're made of.
