Lucky dog! Life is a romp in the park after Tucker rolls in clover in this gleeful new tale about a charmingly expressive pup.
When Tucker the terrier wakes up on Saint Patrick’s Day, he gets off on the wrong paw. Nothing is going his way until he rolls in a bed of clover — a bed of four-leaf clovers, that is, which just happens to belong to a leprechaun! Lucky Tucker! From snatching a falling scoop of ice cream to wrestling with his best friends to getting a whole box of new toys, Tucker is now the luckiest dog around!
PreS- Tucker adds a St. Patrick's Day story to his previous Christmas and Halloween adventures. At first, March 17 isn't so lucky for the perky white pooch who must endure a walk in the rain-BEFORE breakfast-and a black cat hisses at him. So he decides to roll in a bed of four-leaf clovers to change his fortune. A leprechaun who is watching works his magic, and Tucker finds himself the happy recipient of a falling scoop of ice cream, homemade dog biscuits, and a box of dog toys. And best of all-no bath tonight! This story doesn't have much of a plot, but it's hard not to like this cheerful pup who is determined to have a good day. Simple, bright pictures illustrate the canine's playful activities and will appeal to young children. Introduce fans of Clifford the Big Red Dog to this little charmer.-Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CTCopyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Though Tucker the dog starts his day unlucky he has many adventures that change that. This is a very cute story and was loved by the children it was read to. Though they received it after St. Patrick's day they read it over and over. This will be pulled out next year for some fun St. Patrick's day reading.
