Hooper Finds a Family by Jane Paley

Book Title:Hooper Finds a Family: A Hurricane Katrina Dog's Survival Story (Amazon link)
Author:Jane Paley
Genre:Realistic Fiction
Reviewer:Madison (age 10)
He's endearing.
He's funny.
He's a survivor.

Here comes Hooper, one plucky, spunky dog whose warm spirit and goofy personality are irresistible. Hooper tells his own dramatic rescue tale after being left homeless in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and taking a daring trip from New Orleans to New York to meet his new family. He tells of the terrifying force of Katrina, his trials in the shelter, and being the new dog on the block in a city far from home. As Hooper struggles to find his place, he learns to overcome his fear of water and faces down feisty squirrels as well as the resident bully and top dog in his new neighborhood.
In a moving tale of adventure and triumph based on a true story, meet this tenacious puppy who makes an incredible journey in search of home.

Introduction: This story is about a dog who survived Hurricane Katrina and loses his family and gets new owners.

Brief description:
Hooper is a clumsy pup. Watch him grow up and stand up to bigger dogs. He is a very brave and smart dog.

My favorite part . . .
is when Hooper stood up to the bigger dog named Mel. Mel said to give him the ball, but Hooper didn't even flinch.

I'd recommend this book . . .
to anyone who loves dogs, adventures and the wilderness.
