A book about faith and superstition – and about overcoming your fears. Lucky and Dad watch out for black cats, they don't walk under ladders and never open their umbrellas indoors. Then one day, a cat moves into their stairwell. That's too much for Dad and when Lucky wakes up the next morning, Dad is gone. Fortunately, Grandma comes and picks up Lucky. And she is not particularily concerned that with cats, cobwebs and four-leaf clovers.
