The Icehogs stand up against bullies on the ice in this latest Brady adventure!


Tes is one of the best players on the Icehogs, famous for her spinning, goal-scoring “twirlin’ torpedo” move. But when Brady, Tes and the rest of the Icehogs face off against the annoying Hounds, Tes can’t get around to do her go-to move.

The Hounds have singled her out because she’s a girl and won’t let up on the teasing. Brady comes up with an effective — and hilarious! — solution. The Hounds can’t bother Tes if they don’t know which player she is!

The Brady series is much-loved by teachers and coaches for its engaging character education themes. In Brady and the Twirlin’ Torpedo Brady and his friends confront issues of bullying, teamwork and acceptance.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Brady Brady “…the Brady Brady series shows young children being confronted by child-appropriate difficulties, such as teasing and pushy parents, and finding ways, sometimes with some adult help, to solve them. Chuck Temple’s cartoon-style illustrations add a great deal to the books’ pleasure, and his attention to details make the local ice rinks and their dressing rooms come alive.
