Gonzalo Grabs the Good Lifeby Janice Levy
After Gonzalo wins the lottery, he decides it’s time to leave the farm and go out to find the good life. He tries everything, from golf to boating to solos in the church choir — but no matter where he goes or what new adventure he embarks on, Gonzalo still does not find what he’s looking for. What will make this sassy rooster happy? This rollicking story, with its bright, colorful illustrations, will remind readers that sometimes contentment is right in your own backyard.
