SANTA'S DAY JOB

Sal Barry, of Sports Collectors Digest, rated Gratoony the Loony the top hockey book from the 2017-18 season ... with Ken Dryden's great Game Change at fifth, perhaps the first time that Gratton ever beat Dryden at anything except drinking (and streaking, yoga, swearing...).

QUINN THE BOOK REVIEWER

In January 2019, I was invited to speak to a kindergarten class at King George Public School in Toronto. We talked about Santa Claus, and what they think he must do the rest of the year, and then I read Santa's Day Job and then Duck with the Puck to them. I'm open to author visits, just email me at goliver845@gmail.com

Making it plural for OliverBooks.ca is Quinn Oliver, the 11-year-old son of Greg Oliver & Meredith Renwick (herself an author!). Besides teaming with his Dad on Duck with the Puck, Quinn likes to do video reviews, mainly of books, but sometimes of Nerf guns too. We've started an archive of all his reviews here. The latest review is the new book, The Ice Chips and the Haunted Hurricane​, from Roy MacGregor and his​ daughter Kerry. 

GRATTON BESTS DRYDEN!
