Lucky was a lucky, happy rat who had been rescued by a kind lady and through her, he met his friend Jack. Lucky and his brother, Gus-Gus, found a home with Jack and his family. They were safe and loved and couldn’t be happier! One day, Jack decided to take his two tiny friends to watch a baseball game. While Gus-Gus was happily munching his way through snacks, Lucky was transfixed by the ‘game’ happening in front of him. He wanted to play too but rats don’t play baseball. Still, that doesn’t stop Lucky from loving the game and being excited by the fact that Jack took him to practice with him. There he met new friends and was even given the chance to be the team’s mascot. He learned about baseball and somehow became the secret batting coach of the team. But things don’t turn out the way he had hoped. Instead of being seen as a helpful guide, Lucky’s presence was seen as a threat by a rival baseball team. What will happen next? Read Lucky At Bat written by Alisse Lee and Joseph Goldenberg to find out.
Lucky At Bat is a children’s book by Alisse Lee and Joseph Goldenberg; an uplifting tale of friendship, love, bravery, and hope. It was an engaging read from start to finish. The book has a third-person narrative and steady pacing, an even tone, and a smoothly flowing storyline. Gus-Gus and Lucky were so adorable that they made me want some pet rats of my own. Lucky was such a caring, happy-go-lucky rat. I admired his passion for baseball and his determination to help his friends. Jack was a sweet, energetic, and loving boy who cared about his pets and loved baseball. The story was made up of many different characters, from Jack's family to his Bulldogs team, and they served as a strong foundation and support for this straightforward plot. I was pulled into this story right from the very first sentence and, along the way, I witnessed the characters grow and learn from their experiences. This book showcases the importance of family, friendship, and support. The Goldenbergs have nailed the market for wholesomeness with this. An engrossing and inspirational read. I am looking forward to reading more work by Alisse Lee and Joseph Goldenberg. An outstanding job!
