Harry and Hopper do everything together. Ever since Hopper was a bouncy puppy, he has been at Harry’s side. When they are young, Harry teaches Hopper how to catch a ball and fetch his lead. As they get a little older, Hopper helps Harry with his homework and Harry helps Hopper disappear at bath time. Then one day, Hopper isn’t there anymore.
Margaret Wild’s Harry & Hopper (PB $16) is a touching story about love and loss and moving on. Freya Blackwood’s illustrations are simply perfection.
