The Greatest Goal - Mike Leonetti and Sean Thompson

The Greatest Goal
Mike Leonetti (Author)

Sean Thompson (Illustrator)

Scholastic
ISBN 9780545986847

I do not remember the '72 series first hand, but heard stories from those that do. This book captures the spirit of a nation during that incredible series. It is told through the eyes of a young hockey player who looked up to and admired Paul Henderson. It recounts the events of those amazing 8 games and especially Paul Henderson's winning goal. Wonderfully illustrated and written, this will be treasured by hockey fans both old and young.
