Jennifer Richard Jacobson has written numerous books for young readers, including four other books about Andy Shane. She lives in Yarmouth, Maine.

K-Gr 2-Andy Shane believes that if he can find a four-leaf clover, he will have that little extra bit of luck he needs to win the bike-decorating contest in his town's upcoming parade. When Dolores shows up, he tells her that he wants to find the lucky charm to help him win the contest, but not that he hopes it bring him luck in fulfilling his dream of becoming a hero. As the parade day nears, Andy works hard to prepare his bike. When the day arrives, the boy's nerves set in, especially when he overhears a child misidentify his bike decoration. Out of nowhere, an opportunity to become a hero presents itself and Andy springs into action and saves the parade. Jennifer Richard Jacobson's beginning chapter book (Candlewick, 2010) is read by Rachael Lillis who gives the characters unique voices that match their personalities. Sound effects add to the telling, but in a few instances it is difficult to figure out what they represent.
