Book Spotlight: Aye-Aye Gets Lucky

This post was created in partnership with Aye-Aye Gets Lucky.

Recently I was sent a children’s book to review, and before even reading the book I was immediately intrigued because the Canadian author, Terri Tachell is known for her Oscar and BAFTA nominated work on ‘District 9.’

Aye-Aye Gets Lucky is a funny, smart and insightful book about an Aye-Aye who after causing mischief in a village in Madagascar, gets banned as bad luck. He eventually befriends a flying fox, and with the help of his new friend wins back the hearts of the people of Madagascar… despite his creepy hand.

If there’s one thing that makes my kids fall in love with a book, it’s any mention of poop. Haha! No, seriously, up until this point my kids’ favourite book has been Everyone Poops, but Aye Aye Gets Lucky delivers with the perfect line about halfway through the book, “He was so scared he wet himself and pooped upon the ground!” My kids howled with laughter.

Aye-Aye Gets Lucky is part of the ‘Endangered and Misunderstood’ series, shining a spotlight on endangered animals, giving them a relatable stories, filled with humour and adventure.

Complete with an interactive section in the back about the endangered Aye-Aye, this book is not only entertaining and educational, but my five, eight and ten year olds all fell in love with it. A proceeds from the sale of each book goes directly towards the conservation of the Aye-Aye.
