Overview

This heartwarming adventure of Lucky Macy, a mallard, is based on a true story of a duckling found in the early spring of 2006. Lucky's adventures began after her egg was found in front of Macy's department store near Livingston, New Jersey, by two kind farm girls, Annie and Marie Williams, who welcomed the duckling into their lives and hearts as the newest member of their family.
Follow as Annie; Marie; a miniature horse named Lita; Sydney, a self-centered sparrow; and Chippy, an easy-going chipmunk, join in the fun of helping Lucky discover not only what she is but also about the value of family. In time, Lucky will realize that family is made up of the ones who love you regardless of who you are.

I bought this book for my goddaughter. The cover was eye-catching. My goddaughter enjoyed the story very much. She couldn't believe all the adventures Lucky had. Her mother and I enjoyed listening to her as she told us about some of Lucky's adventures. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about animals.

I read the Adventures of Lucky the Duck to my third grade class, as the end of the day activity. MY students enjoyed the story very much. They enjoyed hearing about Lucky's adventure. Also, allowed for discussions of what families are made up of , and how it relates to their own families. I was also really excited to share with them that twenty percent of the profits go directly to the Saint Jude's Children's Hospital for Cancer.
