I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review. It should be note I’d won a copy of the first book of this series through a giveaway on LibraryThing.com and had written a review for it as well.
Once again, Michael Stubben has succeeded in communicating to young readers an important life lesson; this time the lesson Kichin’ Lenny learns deals with sportsmanship and teamwork.
While Lenny is a great goal keeper, his younger brother is a great scorer; and each longs to be like the other. When Lenny finally scores a goal, he enjoys what he has done and then realizes he has had the same fun feeling when he succeeds in blocking the goals being attempted by the other team.
The author in writing this book doesn’t talk down to the child reading it but draws the readers into the story and its lesson by addition of humor.
I’m pleased to give this book 5 STARS.
