The third title in the beloved and bestselling Ice Chips series by acclaimed authors Roy MacGregor and Kerry MacGregor and illustrator Kim Smith, featuring a vibrant and diverse cast of characters and inspiring hockey greats
Would you play on a team with your worst enemy?
Lucas Finnigan and his friends on the Riverton Ice Chips know a thing or two about time travel—at least, they’ve been learning. The magical flooding of their beloved hometown rink has already whisked Lucas, Edge and Swift into the past to meet Gordie Howe and Sidney Crosby when those hockey greats were just kids. That’s how they learned about the roots of the game, and about how far practice can take them . . . but this time?
When goalie Swift is invited onto an all-girls hockey team but refuses to join forces with Chips’ rival Beatrice Blitz, Lucas decides that their only option—even as Swift’s sister, Sadie, guesses their secret—is to leap through time once again.
Pretty soon Lucas, Swift and Sadie find themselves smack in the middle of the Calgary Olympics. A determined young hockey player known as Chicken is in desperate need of new teammates to compete in an Olympic-style match. But do the Chips have what it takes to help Chicken’s team get back in the game and win? And will winning be enough to change Swift’s mind about the new team back home? With a clever lesson from their new friend—who’ll go on to become one of Canada’s best-loved Olympic hockey players—anything is possible.
“A wonderful book about Canada’s greatest game: hockey. . . . The Ice Chips and the Invisible Puck continue to win the hearts of readers (of all ages) with their spunky and endearing characters.”
“Roy MacGregor and his daughter Kerry MacGregor score a hat trick, combining time travel, the good old hockey game, and life lessons in their bestselling Ice Chips series.”
“Moments of insight and empathy don’t jar or weigh down the story, but are deftly woven into the hometown hockey narrative. . . . It’s not surprising how well-crafted the book is given the pedigree of its authors.”
