Hockey and friendship face off in three fast-paced, easy-to-read stories!

Three hockey chapter books in one! Tom and his friends from the Glenlake Hawks hockey team tackle realistic issues that kids face, both on and off the ice.

Whether it's Tom learning how to make good on a promise in The Rink Rats, to dealing with jealousy over a friend's hockey talent in Tryout Trouble, to worrying about whether his luck has run out in Hockey Luck, each story is packed with humour, heart and hockey fun!
