Owen and his sister Holly have just moved to Nova Scotia from Saskatchewan. It’s December and they miss playing hockey on the lake until their parents surprise them with an innovative idea they materialize with the help of their neighbours.
Mike Leonetti has the knack for taking a sports hero and making him come to life through the pages of a book. This, coupled with Greg Banning’s true-to-life stunning illustrations made The Mighty Tim Horton a pleasure to read.
