Yossi and his family have settled in Montreal after fleeing pogroms in Russia. The year is 1891 and Yossi works hard to save money to buy a pair of hockey skates because his goal is to emulate the French-Canadian boys who are his friends. Misfortune compels him to use his savings to buy food for his family but eventually he gets a pair of secondhand skates and learns how to score a goal. An attractive format, short chapters, and large print plus the story itself will appeal to elementary grade boys.
