Always on the go, to work and to school, and shopping on the weekends, the Gustin family fill their lives with things more important than their little brown dog. So Boy spends most days alone, in the fenced backyard, feeling vaguely unloved and growing fat- until the day he decides to dig himself out. With sensitivity and skill, Susan Boase reminds us that every dog deserves his day- and perhaps, if we are truly fortunate, at day's end, we will find companionship and love.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Lucky Boy is a beautiful wonderful story. It brings out how some families may take on more than they can handle and yet, good still comes from it.
My 4 and 6 year old love it. It has beautiful illustrations. Very simple, in black and white. It has lots of words for a picture book and holds their attention for a while. The story itself is sweet. It makes kids smile and parents think. It is certainly a book I am glad to have in hardcover and plan on keeping for a while.
