Description

Few stories better capture the spirit of what it is to be Canadian than Roch Carrier's The Hockey Sweater. This tale of a little Québecois boy who idolizes the great Maurice "Rocket" Richard has become a Canadian classic. The joy he feels when his mother writes to "Mister Eaton" to order a Montreal Canadiens hockey sweater is replaced with horror when a Toronto Maple Leafs sweater arrives instead.

The Hockey Sweater was adapted as a children's book in 1984 and is still in print. In 1980, the National Film Board of Canada produced an animated short feature titled The Sweater, narrated by Roch Carrier. It has since become one of their most popular animated films. This quintessential Canadian tale is accompanied by four stories from Carrier's classic collection; Son of a Smaller Hero, Pierrette's Bumps, The Machine For Detecting Everything That's American, and What Language Do Bears Talk? Featuring the voices of Gratien Gélinas, Mireille Lachance, Flora Belzano, and other familiar actors, this audio edition of Roch Carrier's stories of childhood will entertain the entire family.
