6.The Ghost of the Stanley Cup by Roy MacGregor

ISBN 07710 5622-2 - McClelland & Stewart, 2000

An enjoyable yarn that weaves the legends of the Ottawa Rebels, Tom Thompson, "Bad" Joe Hall and Lord Stanley with a hockey tournament that the fictional Screech Owls attend in the nation's capital.
I greatly enjoyed meeting sports writer & columnist Roy MacGregor with my grade 5 class at a local public library where he gave a book talk. He graciously signed each of the drawings that they had made in class that they created while a read the first book of the Screech Owl series, Mystery at Lake Placid, aloud.
