Summary

Summary

A very special title for a very special athlete: hockey enthusiasts both young and old will grab this engrossing biography of Mario Lemieux. Wonderfully researched, beautifully written, and most of all, filled with an exciting collection of color action photographs, it captures Lemieux's unique skills throughout his stellar career. When this hockey superstar announced his return to the NHL in December 2000 after a three-year absence, no one doubted that he would once again become the most explosive scorer in the league. No player has anything like his history of spectacular comebacks, from injury and even cancer. And, when he graced hockey once again with his brilliance, he set another new record: not only does he play for the Pittsburgh Penguins, he's also the owner!

Booklist Review

Gr. 4-8. No series titled Hockey Heroes would be worth its name without a book on Pittsburgh Penguin legend Mario Lemieux. Playbyplay of critical games and accounts of Lemieux's numerous records and awards share the pages with ample full-color photos in this largely all-business, career-oriented biography. There are also a few memorable anecdotes: when Montreal winters of his youth grew too severe to trudge to the ice rink, Lemieux and his two older brothers packed their carpeted living room floor with snow and made their own hockey rink. Young hockey fans will enjoy the portrait of the superstar player, renowned for the determination and strength that brought him back to the rink as player and owner despite back surgery and debilitating cancer treatments. --Ellen Mandel
