Good and bad luck accompany Ned from New York to Florida on his way to a surprise party.
I loved this book as a kid. My younger brother and I memorized the whole thing and would recite it together–one of us would take the “fortunately” parts and the other would do the “unfortunately” lines. We thought it was clever and funny. I re-read it recently with my kids, and I was delighted to find that I still like it just as much as I once did, and my daughter loves it too!
