Lucky G and the Melancholy Quokka is the story of a raven named Lucky G who helps other animals feel better when they are sad, mad, or just not feeling right. Lucky G gets a call from his friend Drew in Australia. He flies over there and finds out that Blue the Quokka is feeling very blue. He is not happy, but is sad. Lucky goes and talks to Blue to find out what is going on with him. He learns that Blue is feeling sad but doesn’t know why. Lucky talks and plays with Blue to figure out the reason why. He knows that Blue has depression. By talking, playing, and getting a new friend, Lucky helps Blue’s depression to go away.
I like the rhyming in this book because it made it easier for me to understand what was happening. I like the pictures in the story because they are bright and colorful. I like how Lucky G was able to help Blue, and I think it is cool that he helped him just by playing and talking. This is a good book for other kids who are feeling sad or depressed.
