HOOPER FINDS A FAMILY

My friend in California told me about this adorable children's book that was written by her sister-in-law. It is based on a true story about a lab puppy who survived hurricane Katrina.  The author, Jane Paley, and Hooper were on the CBS morning show a few  weeks ago.  The following is a description of the story from one of the online book stores:

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.
