As human beings we are met with challenges on a daily basis and how we choose to react to them is entirely up to us. Meet Juanito, a boy who is excited about his birthday party and disappointed at the same time because he cannot participate in sports with his friends because of his paralysis.

Juanito’s hope for his birthday is to receive super hero toys and he imagines what fun they would be to have. An unexpected gift of a puppy ends up being the best gift imaginable in more than one way. The companionship is the obvious and the outcome of the unexpected will make the readers’ heart soar with faith. Read Lucky’s Lick to discover Juanita’s special gift and how it changes his life.

Mary Esparza-Vela’s talent for blending many emotions at once from the characters into a believable and heartwarming story from the onset will make Lucky’s Lick a story to read over and over again. Illustrator, Denis Proulx’s delightful illustrations bring Juanito’s story to life capturing the story of friendship, faith, and determination. A must read for one and all for whatever your adversity in your life is. 

Congratulations to Mary and Denis...wishing you continued success!
