In the mold of our very popular series of state alphabet books, we offer Z is for Zamboni to hockey fans young and old across North America. Matt Napier's "breakaway" rhymes and "hard-checking" expository text team up with the "top-shelf" illustrations of Melanie Rose to elucidate this increasingly popular game for every beginning hockey aficionado. Highlighting rules, players, coaches, teams, and the history of the game, it is both fun and educational.
Matt Napier is the author of the best-selling Z is for Zamboni: A Hockey Alphabet and Hat Tricks Count: A Hockey Number Book. The son of a professional hockey player, Matt was born in Montreal, Quebec. He is a recent law school graduate and lives in Toronto.
Melanie Rose is the award-winning author of Ashford (BRAG Medallion, 2012) and Violet Shadows (Next Generation Indie Book Awards 2013, Novella Category Winner) and An Amazing Alphabetic Anthology. She lives in Chewelah, Washington.
