FABULOUS FINISH: My Lucky Day
My Lucky Day
By Keiko Kasza
G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 2003. Picture book.
When a piglet accidentally knocks on the door of a fox, the fox declares that this must be his lucky day and rushes the terrified piglet to the roasting pan. But before he can eat him, the piglet points out that he is very dirty and shouldn’t the fox give him a bath first? The fox agrees and prepares a luxurious bath for the piglet. But before he can move on to cooking his dinner, the piglet suggests that the fox fatten him up a bit. “Just a thought, Mr. Fox.” And so the fox prepares an elaborate spaghetti dinner to feed the piglet. Mr. Fox’s lucky day is beginning to get exhausting…
This storytime favorite never gets old. The sly piglet, the harried fox, the facial expressions of the characters, and the hilarious surprise ending make this book a classic.
