If, like Tom, you responded "Huh?" after reading the quote above, you will want to look for an earlier book in the "Timberwolves" series to familiarize yourself with Johnny, Stu, Tom and the Timberwolves before continuing. If you thought, "They are at it again," this is the book for you. Though Timberwolf Tracks can work as a stand-alone, it will be appreciated more with some time spent with the boys in one of the earlier books (Timberwolf Challenge, Timberwolf Chase, Timberwolf Hunt, Timberwolf Revenge and Timberwolf Trap). More than any of the five earlier books in the series, Timberwolf Tracks relies on the reader's being familiar with Johnny's and Tom's prankster humour.
Now that Tom is accustomed to living in Howling and playing on the Howling Timberwolves hockey team, it is time to start training for the most important trophy in town –– known simply as the Wassabee. The Wassabee is the annual fathers-against-sons hockey game played outside on Lake Wassabee. But the Wassabee is far more than just a hockey game. The fathers and sons go on an overnight road trip to play the game, and, on the road, anything is possible. The Wassabee is won by the team with the most points. The fun part, however, is there are two ways to get points: scoring goals, and scoring jokes. Let the games begin.
