For Anda, the T-Rex, nothing is going right! After a simply awful day, she's convinced that a horrible hex has given her the worst luck ever! But she soon discovers that bad luck is simply a matter of how you look at things.
A fun day of playing the jungle goes terribly wrong after Anda trips and falls over a tree trunk. That's followed by a long lone at the ice cream parlor, where they run out of her favorite flavor! Then, as if all of that wasn't bad enough, it starts to rain! There can only be one explanation: Anda is hexed and has terrible luck!
"There's nothing to question, no reason to doubt,
that bad luck always follows when I'm out and about."
She got herself up and brushed herself off,
kicking up dust that caused her to cough.
"There's an ugly black cloud floating over my head,
and I'd be better off staying in bed!" Anda said.
But in a classic story of the "glass being half full," her very positive, happy-go-lucky dinosaur friend, Bull, helps Anda realize that luck is simply a matter of perspective. After all, rain doesn't have to ruin the day - it could just be a chance to play in the mud!
