Lucky Cat

AsianBossGirl: Melody Cheng, Janet Wang, Helen Wu, Illustrated by Eunice Chen

June's family has a new home in America. There’s plenty to do before their restaurant opens, but Mama is excited when she finds the previous owners have left a Lucky Cat! It’s meant to bring good luck to their ventures, and June is even more excited the next evening when she finds that the statue can come to life.

But unfortunately, Lucky Cat doesn’t seem that lucky. She has the best intentions but she knocks over the vinegar bottle and rips holes in people’s clothing. Will she ever get anything right? Luckily, June learns that real luck is earned through hard work and perseverance as the family embark on a new venture, close to their hearts.

This beautiful book, authored by the hosts of the hugely popular AsianBossGirl podcast and packed with lively, characterful illustrations from the exceptionally talented Eunice Chen tells a funny and uplifting tale of family love and fitting in in a new country.
