An exciting, behind-the scenes look at P.K. Subban - a superstar both on and off the ice! From his earliest days, P.K. (short for Pernell-Karl) has been a force! He comes from a family dedicated to hard work and fun; a family not afraid to take chances. Amazing Hockey Stories traces his journey, from his time as an Atom to his time on Team Canada, when he won Olympic gold, and then all the way to the NHL and his exciting Stanley Cup runs with the Predators. This book also highlights Subban's commitment to important causes. His support for the Montreal Children's Hospital and other children's charities has made Subban a hero off the ice. Almost as legendary? His sense of humour and cutting-edge style! In this third book in the series, author Lorna Schultz Nicholson, a bona fide lover of the game, gives young readers an up-close look at this true hockey superstar. This series features an action-packed format combining the excitement of full-colour comic book illustration segments with lively text and lots of photographs.

Meet Madeline and Justin. Before Madeline's bike accident left her with a traumatic brain injury, she and her twin sister were inseparable. So were her parents. But now, Madeline's parents are divorced and Becky has become rebellious, angry, and sneaky. Even worse, she doesn't seem to want Madeline around anymore. At least Madeline knows she can always rely on the miniature therapy horses she visits every week. Justin is a senior and the president of his school's Best Buddies club. Before his sister with autism died, he used to take her to the barn to visit her beloved therapy horses. Now, with Madeline, he goes there to escape the gloom of his mother's grief at home and the pressures of his final year in high school. Together, Justin and Madeline help each other to reconnect with the important people in their lives - and with the lives that they thought they'd lost.

Archie comes back from his summer away to find that he is the only kid in Grade 6 who has not grown bigger. Even his best friends Alfie and Shamini have gotten taller — and Shamini has developed in other ways, too.

From practicing the ninja crawl to bulking up with exercise and a high-protein diet, how can Archie fail?

Stuart can run like the wind. It's a skill that has come in handy for him all his life. Born with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD), Stuart has learned to run away from all kinds of trouble — at least, if he can recognize it. Sometimes it's hard for him to know when a friend really is a friend or when he's just bad news. Sam is a basketball star destined to play on a university varsity team until he's sidelined by a dangerous heart condition. After losing the one thing that centers his world, Sam focuses his energy on helping his Best Buddy, Stuart, make the school track—and—field team. But first, both Stuart and Sam must come to understand that there is a time to run and a time to stay where they belong.
