Can a terrier named Lucky bounce back from some bad luck. "Lucky" the illustrated book by Craig Inglis is a puppy tale any child will love. With an easy-to-read story and beautiful illustrations by Richard Kinsey, the uplifting, enlightening picture book shows children that they can overcome even the most challenging of problems with the love of friends and with plenty of determination. Positive and joyful, this highly original, instructive book will spark animal lovers everywhere, and show children the power of positive thinking in difficult times, such as a life-changing physical disability, through the triumphant story of a lovable, plucky dog named Lucky.

Craig Inglis created a lovely story that is complemented by nicely done illustrations created by Richard Kinsey. This is a sweet story about how the lives of a man and a dog got intertwined by a strong sense of friendship and companionship. One of my favorite things about this, is that it can be used as a tool to teach kids about compassion and empathy.

Colors are really pretty and character design is interesting. Illustrations have a style of their own that effectively complements the story.

I recommend Lucky and my little girl too. She loves to browse the illustrations and listening to the story.

Soon Gabriel is pushing Glory to show her work at art events, and the new relationship starts taking Glory away from her bff just when Julia needs her. Glory is in for a startling revelation when she discovers not only Gabriel&#…
