The Private Letters of Lucki Cinders
by Anne L. Gibson
What would our four-legged friends say if they had a voice? In this collection of letters written by little black Cocker Spaniel, Lucki Cinders, the personable pup is given voice to cheer up one of her favorite humans, Imajean, who has been diagnosed with cancer. With each letter, Anne L. Gibson lovingly renders a tribute to both Lucki and Imajean in what she calls a kids book for grownups, in which the moral is to help others to laugh and feel joy any way you can.
The Private Letters of Lucki Cinders won second place for short stories at MoonDance International Film Festival in 2011.
