As far as Piper Green is concerned, the day started out lucky: • Lucky thing #1: Her mom is painting Piper’s bedroom her favorite color. • Lucky thing #2: Piper found a perfect strawberry at breakfast. • Lucky thing #3: Piper lost a tooth. And as everyone knows, tooth + tooth fairy = ka-ching! There’s just one problem. According to her friend Jacob, too much good luck can sometimes equal bad luck. And when Piper gets to school that day, Bad Luck is waiting for her. Will the Fairy Tree in Piper’s front yard be enough to break her unlucky streak?

In this second book, Piper is happy about all of the good things going on in her life, like her mother painting her room lime green, finding the perfect strawberry for breakfast, and having her favorite baked good, cinnamon rolls, from Mrs. Grindle. When a fourth lucky thing happens-- her loose tooth falls out-- Piper is worried that something bad will happen because she has too much good luck. It does, in the form of a new student, Camilla, who is moving to Peek-a-Boo island but is allergic to the class rabbit, Nacho. Piper is so mad that she convinces Camilla that Ms. Arabella is a wicked witch, which gets Piper in trouble. Luckily, the Fairy Tree comes to the rescue with a rather odd gift-- one earring. It is that earring, though, that attracts a stray parakeet, Yikes, who becomes the new class pet.
Good Points
If I recall, elementary school is filled with a lot of friend drama, as well as some stretching of the truth, so Piper's reaction to Camilla and her way of dealing with her is spot on. Ms. Arabella explains to Piper how upset Camilla was when she thought her teacher was a witch, but is understandin about how much Piper misses Nacho. Piper's parents make her apologize profusely, and the girls come to an understanding.

This series gives young readers a window into what it would be like to live on an island and like Amber Brown, Clementine and Haywood's B is for Betsy books, shows them that it is okay to have trouble with change and offers constructive ways to deal with it.
