Hott Synopsis:

When Lionel finds a strange looking rabbit foot that makes odd things happen he knows just where to go to find out what this is – Mr. Jardean’s Mercantile & Bakery – the king of everything odd. Mr. Jardean knows his weird and tells Lionel all about the Walbaun foot not knowing that Lionel actually has found one.

Curious thing about a Walbaun foot, it’s great for wishes but you never get exactly what you wish for… as Lionel soon learns.

Hott Review:

What I liked: This is an adorable book. I know the kids & I really enjoyed it. It was light and fun but had a good moral lesson. It’s something that they can read on their own or you can read it as a family, as we did. Don’t miss out on this book!
What I didn’t like: Lionel’s mother really bothered me. I honestly was very provoked by her attitude toward Lionel.
