Bobby Orr played in the NHL with the Boston Bruins for ten seasons leading them to two Stanley Cup victories. He also played with the Chicago Black Hawks for two more— all the while wearing jersey number 4. In the Boy in Number Four, readers will get a glimpse of this hockey legend as a boy and discover the hard work, commitment, and fun it takes to make a dream into a reality.

This book also includes an afterword by Bobby Orr with an inspirational message for kids today.  

I've never really gotten into hockey. The area I live in is more focused on football & basketball, so I never had much reason to watch. In recent years I've gotten more interested in it & I thought this book gave kids a glimpse into the game of hockey. I thought it was a cute book & I liked the afterword by Bobby Orr!
