When Tony joins the Bayfield Blazers team, can he figure out what to do with a bully on the team?

Tony is excited about signing up for hockey. But right from the start, he is bullied by a fellow teammate. In various ways, Tony is supported by a neighbour, his school friends and the coach. As the bullying continues at several practices and games, he begins to learn how to deal with it.

This is an early chapter book about a serious matter, but the tone is funny, light and positive, and in the end, the bully's behaviour changes and both boys learn social skills that will stand them in good stead in the future. Black-and-white illustrations add to the appeal.
