Celebrating A New Children's Book From New York Times Bestselling Authors Stacia Deutsch And Rhody Cohon

All day today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating the Imajin Books release of a great new children's book from New York Times Bestselling authors Stacia Deutsch and Rhody Cohon!

LUCKY PHOO by Stacia Deutsch and Rhody Cohon

When luck and the magic of friendship combine, anything is possible…

Seventh graders Caylie Jiang-Kahn, Lauren Blindell and Sabrina Robinson are making a movie about their friendship when a dirty stray dog shows up and ruins the day. In frustration, Lauren mutters, “Oh phooey,” which leads to the girls naming the dog “Phoo.”

When Phoo is caught and taken to the animal shelter, the girls agree to foster him until he can be adopted. They immediately notice something strange. Every time the dog is around, lucky things seem to happen. The moment he’s gone, the luck disappears.

What happens when they all need the dog’s magic at the same time? It’s up to Caylie, Lauren and Sabrina to decide once and for all: Is Phoo truly a lucky dog?


Stacia Deutsch and Rhody Cohon are the co-authors of more than fifty children's books, both original and write for hire. They worked together on the eight-book, award-winning, chapter book series Blast to the Past. Stacia and Rhody have been on the New York Times Best Seller list for the novelizations of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and The Smurfs. Most recently, Stacia has written Mean Ghouls for Scholastic, and movie novels for The Smurfs 2 and Batman: The Dark Knight Rises.
