My Lucky Day
by Keiko Kaza

Is LUCK just an accidental happening or is there a way to create your own luck?

In My Lucky Day, Little Pig bets his life on Brains over Brawn. This story will forever define the difference between LUCK and DILIGENCE. Kids will delight in this trickster tale that they can relate to a child outsmarting an adult.

"When a delicious-looking piglet knocks on Mr. Fox's door 'accidentally,' the fox can hardly believe his good luck. It's not every day that dinner just shows up on your doorstep. It must be his lucky day! Or is it? Before Mr. Fox can say grace, the piglet has manipulated him into giving him a fabulously tasty meal, the full spa treatment (with bath and massage), and . . . freedom. In a funny trickster tale of her own, Kasza keeps readers guessing until the surprise ending when they'll realize it was piglet's lucky day all along." Puffin Books
