    About Matt Christopher Byron Goto


    1. Matt Christopher is the writer young readers turn to when they re looking for fast paced, action packed sports novels He is the best selling author of than one hundred sports books for young readers.Matt Christopher is America s bestselling sports writer for children, with than 100 books and sales approaching six million copies In 1992, Matt Christopher talked about being a children s book author I became interested in writing when I was 14, a freshman in high school I was selling magazines such as the Saturday Evening Post, Country Gentleman, and Liberty, and I would read the stories, particularly the adventure and mystery stories, and think how wonderful it would be to be able to write stories and make a living at it I also read detective, horror, aviation, and sports stories and decided I would try writing them myself.Determined to sell, I wrote a detective story a week for 40 weeks, finding the time to marry, work, and play baseball and basketball before I sold my first story in 1941, The Missing Finger Points, for 50 to Detective Story magazine.After writing and selling children s sports stories to magazines, I decided to write a baseball book for children I was living in Syracuse, New York at the time, working at General Electric I spoke about my idea to the branch librarian She was immediately interested and told me that they needed sports stories badly So I came up with my first children s book, The Lucky Baseball Bat I submitted it to Little, Brown, and the book was published in 1954.I m sure that playing sandlot baseball and then semiprofessional baseball with a Class C club in the Canadian American League influenced my writing I had my own personal experiences, and I saw how other players reacted to plays, to teammates and fans remarks and innuendoes, to managers orders, etc All these had a great influence on my writing My love of the game helped a lot, too, of course.Out of all the books I ve written, my favorite is The Kid Who Only Hit Homers It s a fantasy, but the main character in it could be real There are a lot of boys who would love to play baseball but, for some reason, cannot The only difference between a real life boy and Sylvester Coddmyer III is the appearance of a character named George Baruth, whom only Sylvester can see and who helps Sylvester become a good ballplayer.I ve written many short stories and books for both children and adults, and find that writing for children is really my niche Being the eldest of nine children seven boys and two girls , I ve lived through a lot of problems many children live through, and I find these problems excellent examples to include in my books.Sports have made it possible for me to meet many people with all sorts of life stories, on and off the field, and these are grist for this writer s mill I m far beyond playing age now, but I manage to go to both kids and adult games just to keep up with them, and keep them fresh in my mind.Very few things make me happier than receiving fan letters from boys and girls who write that they had never cared for reading until they started to read my books That is just about the ultimate in writing for children I would never trade it for another profession Matt Christopher died on September 27, 1997 His legacy is now being carried on by his sons, Duane and Dale Christopher.

    1. Hockey isn't as common a subject as baseball, football, or basketball in Matt Christopher's junior novels, but he writes the game action competently even as he adds his signature sprinkling of the paranormal. Young Pie Pennelli is an adequate right winger for the Penguins of his Fly League hockey team. He isn't their top scorer—that would be Terry "the terrible" Mason, an outspoken defenseman who's always heckled Pie for his blunders on the ice but has ridden him especially hard lately—and h [...]

    3. Oh brother. I would not have read this if wasn't on the Battle of the Book list for next year. I do not know why they choose some the books they choose. I couldn't see anything in this book that made it stand out in children's lit. I suppose they chose it because it's about "sports" and they wanted a variety of books. I don't like sports. I'll occasionally go to a baseball or sports game with a friend but that's it. I don't like talking or hearing about sports. I really don't like reading about [...]

    4. I enjoyed reading this book for multiple reasons. I love the author Matt Christopher's books. The action was constant. There was a lot of description. To me hockey is a very entertaining sport to watch and I soon realized after reading this book that it's fun to even read.

    5. The main character in ice hockey was Pie. He had a bad life at home living up to the expectations his parents have for him that his brother set. He also got some old skates from his brother that he just can't skate in that hold him back. I feel bad for Pie for the way he is treated by teammates too I thought Matt Christopher did a very good job with the book. Pie is a hockey player with very bad luck with skates and the teammates he has to deal with. His bad luck soon washes off when his neighbo [...]

His best friends finds something amazing that will help him become better at hockey. In this book there is 4 main characters Pie, Terry and the twins. Terry does not like Pie which forces a small rivalry between Terry and the twins. The twins and pie are very best friends that do everything together. One thing that I liked about this [...]

    8. Ice Magic, this book is about a regular boy who loves to play hockey. One day after one of his hockey game his two younger neighbors tell him that everything that happened in their stick hockey game came true in his real life game. Pie doesn't believe them, but they are trying to convince him that they are not lying. Is this a coincidence or is it MAGIC? This book was very interesting I liked it a lot because I enjoy mysteries and I play hockey, this book combined the two. I recommend this book [...]

    9. I was assigned to prepare review questions for this book last fall for our school district Battle of the Books endeavor. I was familiar with many of the titles on the proposed list, but not this one, and had to borrow it to fulfill my assignment. This is a niche book, good for the occasional boy who will only read sports books, but I did not enjoy it and thought, "What have I got myself into? If the other titles I am not familiar with are as bad as this how can I encourage kids to read them?"

    10. This book is about hockey games and magic. As Indonesian, hockey games is almost never played in my country. So, while I was reading this book, I got many knowledges about hockey games and because of that should make me to search in google to explore about it. Overall, I enjoyed this book. It tells me that we shouldnt accusse someone. Then, we should have coinscience to having an apology if we know that we were wrong. :)

    11. What if your sports competitions were not a product of your own sweat and tears, but instead the result of some kid's ice hockey table? That's what happens here, and it prepares kids for something they learn about later called point shaving (when the ref or other players give effort based on the point spread).

    12. This book is super good. It is one of my favorites. Pie loves to play hockey. His old skates are too big for him so he always rolls his ankles. Him and his friends find an old antique hockey game and they think it's magic. They think it can control pies whole next game. Will it ruin his career or will it make him an all star?

    13. Umt my thing, but I've been hearing my whole career how Matt Christopher has turned so many kids, especialy boys, on to reading. The magic in this was a turn-off for me. A little cheesy. One more Battle of the Books book to go!

    14. It's been years but I can still remember sitting down and reading this book between the library shelves of my middle school. And while I can't remember them all, I know I ready a bunch of Matt Christopher books, with none being better in my mind than Ice Magic.

    15. My best friend played hockey growing up- a goalie, as it happens, and an all-state top ranked one- and his wife (another great friend of mine) also grew up playing goalie (in VT, not MA where he and I are from) and said she used to read about his shutouts in the newspapers.

    19. Characters include kids named Pie and Frog! It's like an allegory or something. But not.
