KIRKUS REVIEW

Reared in an athletic family in Parry Sound, Ontario, Orr was dazzling on the ice even as a youngster. When he was only fourteen he signed with the Boston Bruins to play Junior A hockey with their farm team in Oshawa. The Rookie of the Year in the NHL four years later, the high-scoring defenseman has since sparked the Bruins to two Stanley Cup championships. A true superstar--described as ""self-effacing. . . friendly. . . quiet. . . courteous. . . good-hearted. . . and charitable""--Bobby, like Billy Jean King, has helped to raise other players' salaries by popularizing his sport in this country. Storybook treatment of that ""storybook hockey player.
