Lucky wants to go fishing...but the brook is gone! He finds that a giant, Elmo, has dammed up the brook to make a lake. According to law, a giant gets to set a task; a human who can do the task gets to have one thing he/she asks for. A human who cannot must work for the giant for seven years. After Lucky's father and mother end up working for the giant, Lucky takes on the challenge. What I especially like about this book is that after defeating the giant, Lucky and his family help out and they all end up friendly with one another. Such a refreshing change from the 'kill the giant' mentality!

Adorable pictures and a clearly told story make this childen's early reader a hit in my opinion.
