Young Kayla loves to make plans; she has a plan for every occasion. Her greatest desire is for her mother to win the lottery to stabilize her family's desperate living situation. Narrator Helen Lederer is wonderful as the irrepressible Kayla and even more fun as eccentric Aunt Birdie, who believes that she's Queen Victoria. This entertaining story shares a moving lesson for children as they observe another child's difficulties. After a realistic struggle, including the appearance of Kayla's long absent father, young listeners will experience a positive outcome. S.G.B.
