Overview

Emery’s clumsy and monumentally unlucky cousin Leon is coming to visit for a whole week!  Philip and Emery, best friends, are desperate to find ways to keep Leon out of their way, but Leon’s bad luck―and disaster―follows them everywhere.  Rabbits’ feet don’t work.  Homemade remedies don’t work.  And when Emery and Philip have an extraordinary spell of bad luck themselves, they’re certain that Leon’s bad luck is contagious.  They plot and plan to convince Leon that the safest place for him is in his own home.  In a panic, Leon gets his mother to end his visit early but promises to return for a night a week from Friday, when he hopes he’ll be over his bad luck. Triumphant, Philip and Emery laughingly decide to circle that unlucky date on Emery’s calendar, but when they do they get a shock. The thirteenth of the month. Friday the thirteenth! And they have to spend it with Leon!

    Teasing children suffer a pleasing payback

    It's summer. Philip and Emery have been looking forward to their vacation from school, but Emery's got bad news and it looks like everything might go wrong. His cousin Leon's going to be staying with him, and Emery's cousin is, well, a little odd.

    Author John Paulits' characters walk a fine line between honesty and humor in this second children's story about Philip. Philip and the Superstition Kid has Philip and Emery hatching all sorts of plots to keep Emery's cousin out of their way-coincidentally meaning he's always in Emery's mother's way. But it's one thing to laugh at someone else's bad luck, and quite another to see it rubbing off on you. Soon their plots are coming back to haunt them and troubles abound. Of course, with twin babies, Emery's mother has more than enough troubles of her own to cope with, and the portrayal of parents at the end of their tether is sweet and generous-genuine enough to glide past a child while adult readers will squirm and smile with sympathy. Rational Philip, fairly rational Emery, mostly irrational Leon-in the end they're all kids, all zany, all fun, and that's as it should be.



    Disclosure: I was given a free copy of this ebook by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
