    DescriptionFew stories better capture the spirit of what it is to be Canadian than Roch Carrier&#146s The Hockey Sweater. This tale of a little Qu&#233becois boy who idolizes the great Maurice &#147Rocket&#148 Richard has become a Canadian classic. The joy he feels when his mother writes to &#147Mister Eaton&#148 to order a Montreal Canadiens hockey sweater is replaced with horror when a Toronto Maple Leafs sweater arrives instead. The Hockey Sweater was adapted as a children&#146s book in 1984 and is still in print. In 1980, the National Film Board of Canada produced an animated short feature titled The Sweater, narrated by Roch Carrier. It has since become one of their most popular animated films. This quintessential Canadian tale is accompanied by four stories from Carrier&#146s classic collection; Son of a Smaller Hero, Pierrette&#146s Bumps, The Machine For Detecting Everything That&#146s American, and What Language Do Bears Talk? Featuring the voices of Gratien G&#233linas, Mireille Lachance, Flora Belzano, and other familiar actors, this audio edition of Roch Carrier&#146s stories of childhood will entertain the entire family.

    Review quote
    Inspiration, of course, takes many forms. So, keep on reading. You won't want to miss out on the many other books on our list -- from The Famished Lover, Alan Cumyn's masterful new novel about one man's struggle for love and meaning, to Art at Work, a sumptuous book on Canada's largest collection of contemporary art. Get ready. There's something for everyone. -- Susanne Alexander
    Back cover copy
    The humorous, touching story of a young Quebec boy whose joy turns to horror when Eaton’s mistakenly ships a Toronto Maple Leafs hockey sweater instead of the Montreal Canadiens sweater ordered by his mother. When he is forced to wear the Leafs “uniform,” his whole world changes, including the attitudes of his teammates. This quintessential Canadian tale is accompanied by four stories from Carrier’s classic collection, including “Son of a Smaller Hero,” “Pierrette’s Bumps,” “The Machine For Detecting Everything That’s American,” and “What Language Do Bears Talk?” Featuring the voices of Gratien Gélinas, Mireille Lachance, Flora Belzano, and other familiar actors, this audio edition of Roch Carrier’s stories of childhood will entertain the entire family.
