Loukas and the Game of Chance by Author Anthony L. Manna

Loukas and the Game of Chance by Author Anthony L. Manna is the story of a flute-playing boy who befriends a magical talking, dancing snake.

This book’s plot story is about the snake who bestows fortune and favor upon Loukas, but some years later, tempted by greed and pride, Loukas loses all his riches and even his family. He now must embark on a treacherous journey filled with suspense and intrigue to find Destiny, Sun, and Moon. The strange souls Loukas meets along the forest path threaten his endurance, his will to survive, his hope of ever reaching Destiny, Sun, and Moon. He trudges on. He will beg the three supernatural powers to forgive him for his foolishness at gambling away his family and riches in a game of chance.  They’ll surely allow him to reverse his misfortune, restore his honor, and win back all that he loves and treasures.

With a total of 96 pages and published by Mascot Books, Loukas and the Game of Chance is based on Greek folktales.

Author Anthony L. Manna is a retired professor of Literacy Development, who has worked with children and teens in drama and storytelling, has been an actor, a director of children’s theater, a vehicle repossessor, and a janitor, and he has taught in schools and universities in Turkey, Greece, Albania, and the United States.

I really recommend this book as it offers a delightful sense of wonder which young readers will enjoy.  This is also a must read for those who love fantasy stories.  It is truly a book for all ages.

Moreover, this book not only offers an engaging story but teaches valuable lessons about courage, loyalty, friendship, and most importantly, learning from other’s mistakes.
