In Lucky for Me , Frank Robson and his partner, Leisa Scott, rescued Lucky, a mischievous, cream-coloured terrier from Death Row, and embraced him as the third member of their high-spirited, boat-mad family.
Now, Frank relates how a curse seems to hover over the three of them as they try to set out on their long-planned, open-ended cruise. Instead of the adventure of a lifetime, there is bad weather outside, bad blood on board, and bad luck besetting them at every turn.
But when the trio do finally escape land, there are beautiful islands to explore and plenty of escapades to be had with a motley crew of colourful characters, crocodiles, feral cats, sharks, snakes, and even a new love interest for Lucky.
Lucky Goes to Sea will take you on an unforgettable journey, with a four-legged hero guaranteed to make you laugh and steal your heart.
