In the days of Roch’s childhood, winters in the village of Ste. Justine were long. Life centered around school, church, and the hockey rink, and every boy’s hero was Montreal Canadiens hockey legend Maurice Richard. Everyone wore Richard’s number 9. They laced their skates like Richard. They even wore their hair like Richard. When Roch outgrows his cherished Canadiens sweater, his mother writes away for a new one. Much to Roch’s horror, he is sent the blue and white sweater of the rival Toronto Maple Leafs, dreaded and hated foes to his beloved team. How can Roch face the other kids at the rink? From the Hardcover edition.


The Hockey Sweater

One of my favourite books I read as a child.

This is a great story. Whether you're a sports fan or not, this captures what loyalty means to kids wonderfully. A nice glimpse into Canadiana as well as anglo-franco dynamics in our culture. I'd recommend this to all parents to read to their kids. And, a Canadiens sweater is better than the Leafs' any day.
