While standing in line inside the Sharks Store at SAP Center last night, something on the checkout counter shelf caught my attention. As I walked up to the cashier, I noticed the item in question was a San Jose Sharks children’s picture book called “The Home Team” written by Holly Preston and illustrated by James Hearne.
As I browsed through the book, I was blown away by the attention to detail in the illustration work by Mr. Hearne. In addition, the story written by Ms. Preston is one that people of all ages can relate to and enjoy.
Being a big kid at heart (and a huge Sharks fan), I put the book on the counter and said, “I’ll get this too.” The cashier lady said smilingly, “Awesome. It’s a cool book and good read for everyone.”
The book sells for $20 at the Sharks Store or you can call the store at (408) 999-6810 to order the book and have it sent to you.
As a holiday bonus, here is the book in scan form
