This is a heartwarming, contemporary story of a First Nations family. The black and white illustrations do a fine job of bringing the story to life, though they have a bit too much shading which makes the book visually a bit dark.

Available in paperback only.  Jane Chartrand and Dionne Nolan, I Want to Be in The Show.  Illustrated by James Mathieu Chambers.  2009

Tristan was born to a loving and supportive family in Kingston,  Ontario. A slight physical anomaly caused one of Tristan's feet to  turn inward, requiring him to wear a brace. From an early age,  
Tristan loved playing hockey with his friends and, like many  children, dreamed of playing in the NHL. He worked very hard, day and  night, night an day until he finally made it to "The Show." As an  adult, Tristan returns to Kingston to return the good will and  generosity that was given to him. This is a heartwarming,  contemporary story of a First Nations family. The black and white  illustrations do a fine job of bringing the story to life, though  they have a bit too much shading which makes the book visually a bit  dark. Even so, this is likely to be a favorite with young readers.
