Books

Planet Hockey: First Star of the Game

Isaac may be the G.O.A.T (Greatest Of All Time) in his hockey video game, but after a championship game-losing accident, he’s an epic fail on actual ice. Unfortunately, the Pods’ robot scout from Planet Galaxia doesn’t know this, and beams him up and away to be the new superstar of their terrible team—the worst in the GL (Galaxian Hockey League). But the interstellar game isn’t quite like hockey on Earth. The stakes are much higher. Can Isaac score a win in the Galaxia Championship Tournament…and get back to home ice?
