Lucky Phoo by Stacia Deutsch & Rhody Cohon
When luck and the magic of friendship combine, anything is possible…
Seventh graders Caylie Jiang-Kahn, Lauren Blindell and Sabrina Robinson are making a movie about their friendship when a dirty stray dog shows up and ruins the day. In frustration, Lauren mutters, “Oh phooey,” which leads to the girls naming the dog “Phoo.”
When Phoo is caught and taken to the animal shelter, the girls agree to foster him until he can be adopted. They immediately notice something strange. Every time the dog is around, lucky things seem to happen. The moment he’s gone, the luck disappears.
What happens when they all need the dog’s magic at the same time? It’s up to Caylie, Lauren and Sabrina to decide once and for all: Is Phoo truly a lucky dog?

“LUCKY PHOO is a great story about friendship, love and responsibility—Phoo, the lucky dog who wanders into Sabrina’s, Caylie’s and Lauren’s world is indeed lucky—although maybe not as lucky as these girls whose life he changes. Okay, full disclosure: I LOVE good, strong, dog stories—Lucky Phoo is precisely one of those!” —Terry Trueman, award-winning author of STUCK IN NEUTRAL
