Cooper is a children's inspirational picture book which is part of a series. Imagine wanting to express a heart-felt hello or a desperate cry for help, but when you opened your mouth, nothing came out. Cooper, a shelter dog, lived with this. He was moved from home-to-home, but he was always returned to the shelter when his inability to bark was found out. Little Boy Ben changed his life! It was Ben who gave Cooper what he needed to bark over and over again.
