Double Luck is read by students and used in classrooms - generally 5th and 6th grades - along with the Teacher Guidelines outlined elsewhere on this site. The childrens' responses have been gratifying. Some of the artwork and excerpts from their letters are included here for your enjoyment. Many thanks to all who wrote and shared their talents with us.
Drawing by Rachel Jackson. Quote from Double Luck. "I curled up on the ground and fell asleep.
That night, as the earth was softened by showers, I dreamed that it was raining coins from heaven."

Excerpts From Letters to Lu Chi Fa
I think your life was pretty hard. But you were always brave. I loved how you turned every bad thing into a good thing. I loved your book.
From this book I have learned to be courageous in every thing that I do. I have also learned to forgive people when they do something to me.
I absolutely loved your book! It was very exciting! I respect you as a writer and as a person. Sister was right, good fortune did find you!
Our 6th grade class has just finished reading your book. Throughout it, I was on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next! Do you have any regrets, and if you had the chance would you have done anything differently? Reading your book made me realize how great my life is.
