AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Sarindi and the Lucky Bird introduces a little boy and his family, and their life together in Indonesia. Sarindi is certain he will never be unlucky again when he wins the lucky marble from Jaya. But luck is more mischievous than a monkey. When Sarindi's mother becomes sick, Sarindi thinks that all the bad luck in the world has come to visit. He thinks there must be something he can do to help her get better. This time, the song of the Lucky Bird won't work, so he visits all the sacred places he knows. At each, Sarindi prays for the good health of his mother, because who knows which prayer will succeed?'
