This one was a lot of fun. Ned's luck changes from page to page, and the concepts of "fortunately" and "unfortunately" are reinforced through the illustrations. When Ned has bad luck, the pictures are in gray scale. Would be a great readaloud.

I like the style of the story more than the story itself. It's fun to look at things from a fortunately/unfortunately point of view

this is a great book - it's great for kids 3 and up, and because of the repitition is great for beginning readers.
