About the Book

You Lucky Dog

written by Matt Christopher, illustrated by Daniel Vasconcellos

Lou Barnes loves to play soccer but he has a little trouble remembering to keep his position on the field. It isn't that he's stupid, he just gets distracted easily. When players get out of position the referees call them offsides, and that can cost the team a chance at a goal. How will Lou be able to help himself and his team? Surprisingly, the answer comes from a very unlikely source: a dog! But whose dog is it and what could he possibly know about soccer that will save the day for Lou and his teammates? Read this wonderful adventure story to find out how Lucky, the dog, becomes an important part of Lou Barnes life.
