Peter Puck and the Runaway Zamboni Machine by Brian McFarlane

Peter Puck has legs and can talk, so he's a bit abnormal for a puck.  Of course, you have a talking zamboni machine named Tony, so anything can happen in this adventure.

Random House of Canada and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published October 14th, so watch for it then.

Peter is complimenting Tony on what a great job he does smoothing the ice and making it great to play on.  Tony is bored.  Same old stuff every day; no big challenges or changes.  He wants to run away.  Peter talks him down by telling him how important his job is.  But when it's time to prep the ice, Tony is nowhere to be found...

This a cute tale about a zamboni machine having a tour around the city.  As he travels along he sees other jobs that are even more boring.  He also manages to get in a car race.  The other contestants are cheating, but Pete and Tony outsmart them.

It's an easy to read, fun book for young ones.  Even if you're not a hockey fan, this book will amuse you.
