Hardlucky is - as his name implies - always falling victim to his bad luck. He falls down stairs, accidentally hits a cow with his cart, and burns down his house. Blaming his hometown for his bad luck, Hardlucky sets out to find a new home. But his bad luck seems to follow him - and he even lands in jail! He is eventually taken to the home of Kotsk, the wise rabbi, who helps Hardlucky realize that if he would just look, listen, and think before acting, his life would be a lot less unlucky. This Jewish parable of making your own luck - and thinking before you act - is sure to speak to children.
Over 2,000 years ago in Shushan, the capital city of the Persian Empire, a Jewish queen saved her people form a wicked man plotting against the Jews. Her name was Esther, and she outwitted the king's chief minister, Haman, who planned to rob and kill the Jews. This retelling of the biblical story, the basis of the Purim holiday, is beautifully presented for young readers.
