Christy Mandin

Lucky just might be the luckiest pearl in the ocean...or not?

In this humorous and meaningful picture book by debut author-illustrator Christy Mandin, a pearl named Lucky sets off in search of a new home after her home is crushed by trash.

While looking for a place to live, Lucky bumps into a certain someone and discovers something even better than a shiny new shell: friendship.

Lucky is perfect for fans of Not Quite Narwhal and Tiny T. Rex and the Impossible Hug. This story shows the harmful effects of ocean pollution and models how materials can be reused rather than thrown away. Perfect for Earth Day promotions!

Dynamic backmatter provides further details on the environmental crisis and how readers can prevent and reverse ocean pollution.
