The story of a cute pair of cats, Aly and her brother Bugsy, who Learn that hard work, perseverance, and practice pay off.

She draws a star in but when the ball lands in a puddle of water, Bugsy discovers as the star wipes off, his lucky ball is not really his lucky ball.

Despondent,  his parents explain how well he has done and how he doesn’t need the lucky ball to win.

A beautiful story of believing in yourself, perseverance, family support, and how practicing and working hard at your dreams helps you to accomplish a win.

A wonderful opportunity for parents to open lifeskill discussions as well as a great book to introduce the game of golf and explain the terminology used in the game. The book has a glossary of terms at the end of the story.

With its whimsical and expressive illustrations, young readers will automatically relate to the characters.
