Piper Green and the Fairy Tree: Too Much Good Luck
Second grader Piper Green’s day began lucky. Her mother was going to paint Piper’s room her favorite color, lime green. Then she found the perfect strawberry at breakfast. There was even more good luck on the way to school. Since there were only eight kids on Piper’s island, they took a lobster boat to school. The lobsterman’s wife made baked goods for the kids each day, and that day it was cinnamon roll – Piper’s favorite. Then Piper lost her front tooth. Her friend Jacob told her that four lucky things equal bad luck. And bad luck is what she got. First, the class rabbit was gone. I was because a girl named Camilla was going to come to the class, and she’s allergic to rabbits. When she got home, the fairies in a special tree had left her one earring, and her dad didn’t catch any lobsters for her. The next morning, Piper told Camilla that their teacher was a wicked witch! Can she offset this bad luck? You’ve got to read it to find out!
I recommend this book to children ages seven to ten who enjoy stories about luck. I enjoyed this book because it was a fascinating story.
