A very special group of kids must save the world with— what else? — HOCKEY!

Meet six kids a lot like you. Except Benny, Jenny, Karl, Starlight, DJ and Mo got zapped in an evil plot gone wrong — and became the super-est team the world has ever seen.

In Shooting Stars they have to face off against enormous, multi-appendaged, hockey-playing tardigrades all in space! In this adventure, enhanced giant tardigrades working for astronaut-turned-evil-scientist Richard threaten the world with an asteroid that would end it all.

Find out what happens in this fourth action-packed, laugh-a-minute book in the Hockey Super Six series.

One of the underlying messages in this book is about empathy. Watch this Dragonfly Tales video to find out more about why Laura and Ruby chose Shooting Stars (Hockey Super Six) as a great book for middle school readers.
