About This Book
The Screech Owls have come to the southern city of San Antonio, Texas, a surprising hotbed of American ice hockey. They are here to compete in the San Antonio Peewee Invitational, and between games can explore the fascinating canals that twist and turn through a maze of shops and restaurants in the city's downtown.
The tournament has been set up to include guided tours of the Alamo, the world's most famous fort, and for one night the championship team will even get to camp out in the historic site. The Screech Owls discover that the Alamo is America's greatest symbol of courage and freedom, and when Travis and his friends uncover a plot to destroy it, they must call upon all the courage of the fort's original defenders.

    Mystery at Lake Placid
    Travis Lindsay, his best friend, Nish, and all their pals on the Screech Owls hockey team, are on their way to New York for an international peewee tournament. Excitement builds in the team van on the way to Lake Placid. First there are the entertaining antics of their trainer, Mr. Dillinger - then there's the prospect of playing on an Olympic rink, in a huge arena, knowing there will be scouts in the stands. But they have barely arrived when things start to go wrong. Their star center, Sarah, plays badly from lack of sleep. Next Travis gets knocked down in the street. And then someone starts tampering with equipment. It looks as if someone is trying to sabotage the Screech Owls. But who? And why? And can Travis and the others stop the destruction before the decisive game of the tournament?

    Sudden Death in New York City

    Sudden Death in New York City
    Nish has done some crazy things - but nothing to match this! At midnight on New Year's Eve, he's planning to "moon" the entire world. The Screech Owls have come to New York City for the Big Apple International Peewee Tournament. They'll be playing in Madison Square Garden, home of the New York Rangers, and on New Year's Eve they are going to Times Square for the biggest party in history. The countdown to midnight will be broadcast live on a giant TV screen and beamed around the world by a satellite. But Data and Fahd figure out that with just a laptop computer and video camera they can interrupt the broadcast - and Nish will have pulled off the most outrageous stunt ever. Travis, Sarah, and the others have heard it all before. They are more interested in playing in the tournament and exploring the most exciting city on Earth. But no one anticipated just how exciting New York can be. Just hours before midnight, the Owls discover that terrorists plan to disrupt the New Year's celebration in a more dramatic way than even Nish could have imagined.

    The Kid
    A Season with Sidney Crosby and the New NHL
    In the tradition of A Season on the Brink and Peter Gzowksi's The Game of Our Lives, Shawna Richer has had the exclusive assignment of chronicling Sidney Crosby's incredible rookie season. Beginning with the NHL entry draft that almost never was, Richer follows Crosby to Pittsburgh, where he is greeted as the team's savior and moves in with living legend Mario Lemieux. From there it's onto the ice, where the team's youngest player proves to be its best player day in and day out, staying on pace to set rookie scoring records while the team loses and is forced to fire its coach. From an international advertising deal with Reebok to a season that seems to go from triumph to triumph, Sid the Kid has proven that he already is the man.
