My Lucky Day

by Keiko Kasza

Published by Putnam, 2003
32 pages
ISBN: 0-399-23874-3

Ages 3-7

A hungry fox can't believe his luck when a pig actually shows up on his doorstep. "Oh no!" screams the piglet, who's mistaken the fox's house for Rabbit's. "Oh yes!" the fox gleefully replies, grabbing the pig and getting out the frying pan. But all is not what it seems in Keiko Kasza's crafty tale. The fox's dinner preparations grow more and more complex as the pig points out how dirty he is (resulting in a nice warm bath), how scrawny he is (a nice big meal to fatten him up), and how tough he is (a tenderizing massage). By the night's end, Fox is too exhausted to cook the pig, while the sly swine has had a treatment worthy of the finest spa. Kasza delivers a cunning ending that makes an already hilarious story even funnier. This delightful book will make a terrific read-aloud.
