    1. Kara Kootstra Bobby Orr KimSmith Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Jay Versus the Saxophone of Doom book, this is one of the most wanted Kara Kootstra Bobby Orr KimSmith author readers around the world.

    2. Copy received from publisher for Cybils considerationJay lives with his siblings Jodie and Dylan with their parents in the same town from which hockey great Bobby Orr hales. Jay loves watching and playing hockey and hanging out with his best friend, Luke. He's a little leery of 6th grade starting, especially when Mick Bartlett is in his class again. Mick loves to give Jay a hard time about everything. The hardest thing about 6th grade turns out to be the compulsory music class, for which Jay has [...]

    3. If you love hockey, if you really love hockey, if you eat, sleep, and play hockey, then run out and get this book. This book was written for you. You will devour it. You will sing its praises to all and sundry, and you will race to the finish. You will think this is a five star rated book. And good for you. But, if you could care less about hockey, then don't even think that this might be an ok middle-school book to read. If you think that, well, it has a saxophone in it, and I can relate to tha [...]

    4. This is a wonderful book! I have a seven year old son and we both absolutely loved reading it! Neither of us is into hockey, which didn't diminish our reading experience in the least. This book is about so much more than that - it's about the struggles of the sixth grade, of developing skills that don't come as naturally to us, the importance of hard work, dealing with bulliesd it does all this while being absolutely hilarious and totally engaging. Kootstra writes with wit and humour and charm a [...]

    5. i must say: this book might have been written for me. it features a kid struggling to play a musical instrument (a problem i can't really relate to) and who loves the game of hockey and whose hero is Bobby Orr (and that, friends, i can relate to). cute book, with an afterword by bobby orr himself. comes out in january,2017 and i swear i'm going to get a hockey team's worth of readers to read this, especially if they have no notion of orr or the boston bruins.

    6. This book tackles the illusive ever scary sixth grade, bullying, and bickering. It is a very good read.

    7. I'm not a sports fan. I may have mentioned that 1 or 200 times before. But that didn't stop me from enjoying Jay's story of his love for hockey and his complete lack of desire to play the saxophone. This is a story about a regular kid with regular kid problems to deal with. He has an older brother and sister, mom and dad, and best friend. He plays hockey, hero worships Bobby Orr, and enjoys pickup games on the lake when it freezes over. Like many kids, Jay has the bad luck to be stuck in the sam [...]

    8. This is your book for a young kid who is sporty and not that into reading. Or a younger intermediate reader who likes sports, whatever their reading inclination. It was fun and amusing and Canadian and very much about hockey. It also had a small smattering of drawings. The plot isn't that important - Jay gets last pick for instruments in music and is saddled with a saxophone. Unlike his confidence on the ice, he has no clue of what to do with a sax (or even how to put it together). He is terribl [...]

    9. For Jay Roberts, hockey is life. He has a few typical sixth grade problems like homework, school bullies, nagging (but loveable!) parents and super annoying siblings. All of these things constantly plot against Jay to keep him from doing the only thing he really loves. The one thing he would do 24 hours a day, 7 days a week if he didn’t have to do things like eat.Play hockey.So, when he finds out that he has to actually learn how to play a musical instrument AND play it well enough to perform [...]
