Little Village Book Review of Lucky’s Feet by Thomas M. Cook and Olayinka O. Adegbehingbe

Lucky's Feet CoverWe’re proud to see the wonderful book review of Lucky’s Feet by Little Village Magazine’s Genevieve Trainor. Here are some quotes from the review:

“Lucky’s Feet comes out of the Coralville-based nonprofit Clubfoot Solutions, Inc., and was printed locally, too, at Tru Art Color Graphics in Iowa City… It’s a slim paperback lush with the beautiful watercolor illustrations of Iowa artist Jo Myers-Walker — a deeply Iowan effort from start to finish.

But it also benefits from Cook’s co-author, Olayinka O. Adegbehingbe, MD, a Ponseti mentee who heads the Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology department at Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile Ife, Nigeria. It was Adegbehingbe who treated the deformities of the book’s protagonist, a young boy given the nickname As’ad, or “Lucky,” …

Myers-Walker’s illustrations are the heavy hitters of Lucky’s Feet. The gorgeous colors bring Lucky’s landscape to life, and the tender treatment of the clubfoot condition reveal a generous and gentle approach. Altogether, it’s a sweet and simple book, perfect for older siblings of infants undergoing clubfoot treatment or for teachers looking to bring diverse personal stories into the classroom.”
