A three-legged stray dog finds a loving boy to call his own — illustrated by Caldecott Honor artist E.B
Lewis. Trouper ran with a mob of mutts who tripped over trash cans and pawed the cold streets for bones. They howled and cried and wished for a home. Until one day, the dogs are captured from off the streets and put in cages in a shelter as they wait to be adopted. Trouper watches sadly as, one by one each of his dog friends are chosen. He''s the only one left, until finally — one lucky day, when just the right boy comes around and finds that this three-legged mutt is the perfect pet for him!
