Two days before Christmas, Nicholas checked his Christmas list one more time. “Dear Santa” it read. “Please send me a hockey jersey, hockey socks, hockey gloves, hockey pads, hockey skates, hockey books….”

Needless to say, Nicholas adored hockey.

On Christmas Eve, Nicholas was happy to see his grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles arrive to stay overnight. Before falling asleep, he and his cousins had a fun pillow fight.

The next morning, Nicholas excitedly unwrapped one piece of hockey gear after another. But wait! Nothing seemed to fit. The hockey helmet was too big. The shoulder pads were too big. The hockey socks were too long, and the shin pads and the hockey jersey were simply enormous.

What could Nicholas do?

A Very Hockey Christmas scores a definite hit with the clever twist that ends this humorous story to everyone’s satisfaction – as well as the hockey theme and the comical illustrations by Bruno St-Aubin.

Quebec author Gilles Tibo’s Where’s My Hockey Sweater and The Best Goalie Ever are two of the other titles which feature Nicholas and his beloved game of hockey.
