Lucky, a special illustrated children's book by Craig S. Inglis
"Is a positive book with a "can-do" attitude that helps children understand that they can overcome obstacles in life and even make a better life than before," Inglis says. "I was inspired to write the book by those who faced and overcome physical disabilities."
Intended to entertain and educate young readers, the book aims to share a serious message through a playful, uncomplicated narrative. The book features original illustrations that are really art by Richard Kinsey that depict Lucky, his owner and his courageous recovery.
There is also an "ask Lucky" section on the book's website at www.luckythechildrensbook.com. This makes the book interactive. Children can ask Lucky a question about his disability, attitude, recovery, whatever, and get a thoughtful answer that is informative.

"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become." -C.S. Lewis
