"This is a book geared towards younger teens, 11-13 years old and would make a great gift with the holiday season fast approaching. Howard sent me one of his other books, Hockey Days, which is a fantastic book for younger kids. I sent it to my nephew who loves it.
So if you're looking for a gift giving idea, keep Howard Shapiro and his books in mind this holiday season. You can find his books through his website or on Amazon.com.
