Overview

Hooper Finds a Family: A Hurricane Katrina Dog's Survival Tale by Jane Paley

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.
