Lucky's Little Feather

Lucky's Little Feather

You know, it really is all in how you look at things. Two charming mice, Lucky and Lucy, she of the lovely pearl necklace, are gathering on the edge of a precipice with enchanted smiles on their faces. Lucky is holding a purple feather that dwarfs him in size. "What have you got there?" asks Lucy curiously. So begins a tale of luck or coincidence depending on how you see it and our lovely Lucy sees it as coincidence. Lucky begins to narrate his tale of luck beginning with the wind blowing the feather into a small hole, thereby leading Lucky there, consequently saving Lucky from a passing fox. Lucky insists it was a stroke of luck. Lucy is not convinced. So Lucky tells her more of his lucky feather. The pictures are large and airy and simple which is why when you turn the page and see on the right hand page the two mice having a chat at the edge of the precipice holding the feather and empty space on the entire left hand page except for the paw with the three sharp claws, you notice. You notice and suddenly you are hoping really hard that the feather is a very lucky feather because these little guys are one page turn away from cat food. Love and a positive attitude can work wonders. This reminds me very much of a Tibetan tale I've read with the same sort of the negative becomes the positive. Ages 4-8 30 pages
