Magic Hockey Stick, The

by Peter Maloney, Felicia Zekauskas Illustrated by Peter Maloney

Inspired by a true story, this fictional tale tells how a little girl, whose parents win Wayne Gretzky's hockey stick at an auction, becomes her hockey's team's star player with it. Meanwhile, "The Great One" goes into the greatest slump of his career. Realizing Gretzky needs the stick more than she does, the girl returns it to him, and Gretzky gets over his thousand-goal slump.
