The Three Canadian Pigs
A Hockey Story
The three pigs are just finishing up a hockey practice session when the Big Bad Wolf drops by and declares them Canadian bacon--and lunch. When north country bad boys Bear and Moose join the fray, the pigs invite the gang to settle their disputes The Canadian Way--with a rousing game of hockey. Will the big guys overtake the pigs with brute force? Or will the pigs skate circles around the lumbering baddies? One thing is certain, the trial is likely to end with a meal (poutine, please!). But will the piggies be on the menu?

Kirkus Reviews - The Three Canadian Pigs: A Hockey Story
" Lessons about the importance of good sportsmanship and honoring the terms of competition are delivered clearly, intentionally, and in rhyming verse. ..the emphasis on settling scores with competition instead of violence makes it a sweet, silly lesson for young athletes. A humorous exploration of the value of playing fair."

Jocelyn hopes that she'll someday soon lace up her skates and finally learn to play the sport of her homeland, hockey!
