The meaning of the title is "The Million Dollar Goal" because that is what the contest is called and they are shooting for one million dollars. Throughout the book main characters, Dusk and Dawn are telling the story. I think this book is in a Christian perspective because it doesn't talk about other religions or things like Christianity being false. I have read Dan Gutman's book last year called," The Million Dollar Shot". They had a similar theme and story.

I read to my son every night at bedtime. I was given a Dan Gutman book called The Million Dollar Strike (which I also whole heartedly recommend).

It is sad, funny and disappointing. I read to my son every night at bedtime. While they are all wonderful, this one is by far the funniest.

If you want to get your child interested in reading, this is the book to do it. I read to my son every night at bedtime. I was given a Dan Gutman book called The Million Dollar Strike (which I also whole heartedly recommend). We enjoyed that so much that I ordered all of "The Million Dollar" book titles. While they are all wonderful, this one is by far the funniest. While I was reading one of the chapters to my son, I laughed so hard that I couldn't go on for a minute. When we attempted to re-read that chapter to my husband, we were laughing too hard to complete the sentence. Grandma "Oma" in the book is the character who makes this book hilarious. She is foul mouthed (all the curses are printed as "bleepity bleep" so don't worry) and she farts a lot and there comes a time when that comes to the kids aid with bullies believe it or not! At first they are embarassed by her, but they grow to treasure her as you will. Without giving anything away, I will say it is sad in one part and moved us to tears, but quickly turned it around and made us smile again. I truly recommend this book to anyone of any age. My son and I have read this book together 3 times already and now he is reading it on his own to his friends. I can hear them laughing down the hall when they are reading it. Buy it, you won't regret it.

How would you feel if you were very close to winning a shot at a million dollars, but instead of picking you they choose your ancient grandmother to take that shot? The setting of this book is in Montreal Canada and the main characters are Dawn and Dusk Rosenberg. They are two twins who are obsessed with the game of hockey and their favorite team, the Montreal Canadians. Their dad isn't a huge fan of the game and their grandmother Oma thinks they should be spending their time more wisely, like doing homework than hitting a puck into a net.
One day their dad gets them tickets to a Montreal Canadians game. They go into the parking lot and help Oma into her wheelchair to roll her into the stadium when Dusk sees a flyer by the entrance that reads, "Million Dollar Goal contest tonight", but he thought it was no big deal, and their dad told them it was rigged anyway. They stay till the drawing just to see if they had a chance to shoot the puck in the goal for a million dollars. The light turns on them, and then they find out that...Oma got picked! When they see that Oma was asleep the whole time they want to just keep it a secret from her thinking that she doesn't know what happened. When they get home, right before Oma goes to sleep, she comes out and says "Oh, by the way.... I'm gonna take that shot."
There are some problems along the way, like managers, learning how to play hockey, and some people that are messing with Oma. The main idea of this book is that sometimes you only get one chance in life and you need to go for it. The meaning of the title is "The Million Dollar Goal" because that is what the contest is called and they are shooting for one million dollars.

The pacing of the book was fast, but very detailed. Throughout the book main characters, Dusk and Dawn are telling the story. I think this book is in a Christian perspective because it doesn't talk about other religions or things like Christianity being false. I have read Dan Gutman's book last year called," The Million Dollar Shot". They had a similar theme and story. I would recommend this book to people in fifth and sixth grade. It was a little easy for me to read, but I think older readers would get a deeper understanding of it. I rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

Twins Dawn and Dusk Rosenburg live for hockey and worship the Montreal Canadians. But their dad hates the game and their foul-mouthed grandmother thinks the twins should be doing homework and chores instead of wasting time shooting pucks.

When Dawn and Dusk's dad gets the family tickets to the next Canadians game, they cant believe their luck. I think this is the book for sports fans. I give it two thumbs up. This book will make you laugh and cry. I love this book. Dan Gutman describes the characters superbly.

I like this book because every second there's excitement. There's a lot of twists and turns in this book. I suggest you read this book unless you don't like action, comedy, excitement, and sports. I mean who wouldn't like that? This is one of Dan Gutman's million dollar books.

The Million Dollar Goal is a good book. The title of the book makes you want to read it. The main people are Oma, Dusk, Dawn, Mom and Dad. The mother is nice. The father is a little mean until the end of the book. Dusk is the younger brother. And Dawn is the older sister by three minutes. Dusk is a smart mouth. And Dawn is mature sister.

Oma is just an old cranky grandmother who says bad words and farts. They are a family living in Canada. The characters are weird. Their father gets ticked off when the kids talk about hockey in front of him. Their father doesn't come to most of their games and when he does he just reads a news paper. The book is funny and interesting. I think you will like it! The reason I like the book because it is funny book.

The Million Dollar Goal was a great book! I gave it five stars. It is sad, funny and disappointing. This book is very sad at parts so I would not recommend it for children under six. I think it was a great book and I couldn't put it down!
