I interpret the message of this book to be: Life is unpredictable, and the ability to adapt in unexpected situations, and problem solve for positive outcomes is essential.

Unfortunately, the party is far away Unfortunately, the motor explodes And so it goes, back and forth, as Ned makes his adventure-filled way to a party, where there is one final twist in store I enjoyed Remy Charlip's Fortunately - my first title by This amusing picture-book follows the wildly fluctuating fortunes of Ned, a young New York boy who is fortunately invited to a surprise party.
I really liked the way that the illustrations alternated between brightly colored skies, when depicting the "fortunate" scenes, and dull, gray-toned black-and-white vistas, when depicting the "unfortunate" ones. It really added some extra oomph to the story! All in all, a fun little book, sure to appeal to young readers looking for a tale where anything can happen.

The main character Ned is a fortunate individual when he receives an invitation to a surprise party.
However, as he endeavors to attend the party, fortune is not always his friend. A fantastic journey ensues as Ned encounters a connected string of situations that alternate between impeding or advancing his mission. Illustrations mirror these varying circumstances: full color spreads pleasantly depict fortunate events while black and white images portray unfortunate circumstances. So consistent i The main character Ned is a fortunate individual when he receives an invitation to a surprise party.
So consistent is the layout and design of the book that even the cover, endpaper, and introduction pages faithfully alternate between color and monochromatic illustrations. Woven into each image is either a remnant of the past illustration or a foreshadowing of the next image, tying the entire body of work together seamlessly. The color choice and expressive detail of each illustration along with the distinct, purposeful word choice and placement of text work together effectively to set the hopeful or concerning tone of each spread.
By the end of this adventure, readers are left with a memorable experience they will soon want to revisit.
