The Magic Hockey Skates
By Allen Morgan

Review by: Yvonne Gaudet

     When Joey outgrew his hockey skates, his father took him shopping for a new pair. Although Joey had his eyes on a new pair of skates, his father went straight to the used skates and purchased a pair for him. The salesman, seeing that Joey was upset, told him an important secret, the skates his father had chosen to buy are magic! Every new boy who wears those skates is given three wishes! All they have to do is give them a rub and make a wish. The following day Joey tried out his new skates . His brother Zach wanted to practice taking shots on the net. When Zach wasn’t looking, Joey rubbed his skates and made his first wish." I wish I could be a better skater" he whispered. Slowly but surely Joey’s skating began to improve and by the end of the morning he was skating better then he had before. "Maybe they do work" Joey wondered. Joey practiced very hard over the next few weeks until he was very good, of course the magic skates helped too. While he practiced he wondered about how he would use his next wish. On Saturday Zach and his friends were one player short for a game. Joey asked if he could play, and he told Zach about his magic skates. Zach took a chance but agreed to let Joey play, so Joey used his next wish. "I wish I could skate like the big kids" he whispered and Joey did just that! He skated up and down, passing and stealing the puck. By the end of the game all of Zach’s friends said Joey could join them any time he wanted to. Zach was starting to believe in the magic skates too! "Save it for something big " he said. Joey did save his wish for something big! Something really big!
     This book is another great book for your little hockey fans, whether they are boys or girls. They will realize that maybe the skates weren’t magical at all! Maybe the fact that Joey tried really hard and practiced a lot he became a better hockey player and skater. Rumor has it that Joey’s mother found the skates years later and took them to a used skate store.  Who knows, someone else may just have received three more wishes.
