"An A+ picture book debut" from PW Flying Starts author Jashar Awan


A black cat crossed my path!

I won’t catch anything today!

Four animals are off to the lake to go fishing, but each thinks the other will wreck their day.


Raccoons are thieves.

Frogs give you warts.

Storks deliver babies.


Wait. What?

Where did these crazy ideas come from?


As this wryly humorous and thoroughly satisfying tale shows, it’s a mistake to judge others on what you’ve heard—and there’s plenty of luck for everyone.
