It was almost the first day of winter, and PK still had no skates to wear.

Little PK loves watching hockey on TV with his father, and he can't wait to finally go out an skate—just like his hockey heroes! With his mother's help, PK orders a pair of black, single-blade, size 7 skates. Now he just has to wait for them to come in the mail.

So he waits.

And waits.

Every new delivery brings hilarity and dismay as PK receives skates in the wrong size, the wrong colour, the wrong style—and even a box that is completely empty! All the while, winter approaches and poor PK is eager to get out on the rink. Even as he wonders if he will ever get to skate, his love of hockey pulls him to the sport in funny, imaginative ways.

The Hockey Skates is a story about a boy who maintains his optimism and patience through a series of comical misfortunes—all of which are brought to life by Maggie Zeng's charming illustrations.
