Staff Reviews

Stork, Cat, Frog and Raccoon all end up at the same dock to go fishing, and they all assume that the others will bring bad luck (black cat) or give them warts (frog). They resolve the miscommunication and enjoy a fish dinner together. A funny, appealing picture book that reminds the readers not to rely on stereotypes.

— Cathy



A black cat crossed my path!

I won’t catch anything today!

Four animals are off to the lake to go fishing, but each thinks the other will wreck their day.


Raccoons are thieves.

Frogs give you warts.

Storks deliver babies.


Wait. What?

Where did these crazy ideas come from?


As this wryly humorous and thoroughly satisfying tale shows, it’s a mistake to judge others on what you’ve heard—and there’s plenty of luck for everyone.
