    1. This reminds me of the day I got my Charlie. Sometimes pets do the choosing, not people. I love that this is based on a real Trouper and that it is from his point-of-view. Makes the ending much more special.


    2. I dare you not to cry. But, there's a happy ending. Very powerful and moving. E. B. Lewis is the perfect illustrator for this subject.


    3. What a lovely story of animal adoption. Tugs at the heartstrings in all the right places and the watercolor paintings are just lovely.


    4. A story from a dog's point of view, running with a pack of strays, getting caught by a dogcatcher, and finally adopted. The dog just happens to have 3 legs.


    5. This picture book captures perfectly the longing many stray dogs experience for a home and someone to love. Trouper is part of a large dog pack of various sizes and breeds. They cause all sorts of messes as they search for food, and they endure cruelty from others. When a dogcatcher lures them into his truck, they end up at a shelter. All of them are adopted except three-legged Trouper who describes how his heart "was a cold, starless night" (unpaged) once his friends have left. Luckily for him, [...]


    6. What I found so interesting about Trouper is that it didn't beat you over the head with the fact that he was a three-legged dog. In fact, it took a few minutes for me to process that he was missing a leg because the illustrations and text are not obvious. If you don't read the inside flap synopsis (which I admittedly did not at first), there's a lot of inferencing going on, especially when you get to the last page.


    7. Trouper, a three-legged dog, uses poetic language to describe his journey from the streets to a shelter to a forever-home. Vivid imagery and expressive watercolor illustrations bring Trouper's plight to life. This heartfelt and affecting tale, propelled by unexpected hope and an irresistible narrator, will resonate with dog-lovers of all ages.


    8. In this heart warming story, Trouper, the stray dog, tells his story. From running with a pack of mutts, being abused by bully boys, being taken to a shelter, and finally, being adopted by a loving boy, Trouper's story will have you visiting a shelter to adopt your own dog in need!


    9. Based upon a true story, this book speaks to dog adoption and finding the right person for the right dog, even a dog with only three legs. The artwork is so detailed it almost looks photographic.\My full review: librariansquest/2


    10. Wonderful picture book for any readers, but especially anyone with a dog.Read the whole review at: Trouper


    11. A beautiful picture book about the emotional bonds of animals: first of the dogs bond to each other in a pack before being caught by animal control then to the owner who adopts Trouper. While Trouper is missing a keg that us not mentioned in the text but us shown throughout the illustrations.




    12. A gentle, sweet tale with beautiful illustrations that follows a rescue dog from his time running with the pack to his settling in with his new family.


    13. This book is so sweet! I love a good dog adoption story. :) (If I had lots of money, I would buy a big chunk of land and save all the pups I could!!)



    14. gorgeous art, with a story that tugs at the heart of anyone who has adopted the dog that no one wanted.


    15. Based on a true rescue story, Trouper is the story of a dog who finds his forever home. It is sweet and sad, but has a happy ending. Dog lovers will enjoy this story.


    16. This one got me. I cried! Every kid (and adult!) who reads this is going to want to adopt a pet from the local shelter pronto!


    17. The illustrations are lovely and I really liked how the story was told from the dog's perspective. My eyes welled up as they always do when I read these based-on-true-stories about dogs!



    18. Ever since we adopted our "trouper" similar stories tug at my heartstrings. Lovely story and even more beautiful illustrations by E. B. Lewis.


    19. "Trouper, a three-legged dog, remembers his life as a stray, before he was adopted."Such a sweet, sweet story.


    20. We meet Trouper, a black lab, who runs with a pack of dogs in a run down part of a city. It’s a hard life and things get worse when animal control lures the hungry dogs into the van. The dogs are taken to an animal shelter and separated into cages. At his lowest point, it seems as though Trouper is not going to be adopted. The story takes a heart warming turn as Trouper finds a little boy to love him. Trouper has a warm bed, food and a caring owner who runs with him. This book makes you want t [...]

Laura MuellerApril 18, 2015EDL53500 Library Materials for Children and YouthTitle: TrouperAuthor: Meg KearneyPlot: This story begins with a dog running loose with a bunch of other mutts, looking for food and being treated poorly by neighborhood kids. Then, the dog is lured into a van by a man holding a steak. The dog was rescued and taken into a shelter. He starts feeling sad when all the other animals are being adopted except for him. Then, a boy comes in and likes him right away. He is finally [...]


    22. Target Audience: K-3Summary: Trouper is a book about a dog that is missing one leg. He travels with a group of mutts and has no home of his own. As Trouper travels, he sees how mean people can be. Children threw rocks at him and called him names. Eventually the mutts are all captured and put into an adoption home. All of his friends are adopted except for Trouper. Will Trouper find a boy who loves him, even with one leg? Or will Trouper live out the rest of his days stuck in his cage? Activity: [...]


    23. I was a bit disappointed to read the review of this book listed here on Good Reads, because I think the beauty of this book, is the revelation of Trouper's difficulty. It is a beautiful story, and when I first heard it, I was amazed that I did not "catch on" until the very end. Although based on a true rescue story, Trouper is told in first person, by the dog. We learn that Trouper ran with a mob of mutts until one day when a dogcatcher catches them all. One by one, Trouper watches as all of his [...]


    24. I picked this up from the library because I saw it recommended by Lester Laminack on a FB thread about requesting ideas for picture books to teach point of view. Sweet story about a dog who is adopted. It isn't until the last page that I realized he was a 3-legged dog. I loved how that was fully revealed. E.B. Lewis's illustrations are, of course, beautiful and emotional.


    25. Awwwwww! Such a sweet story of a group of homeless dogs who finally find their forever homes. With particular focus on a three legged mutt who finds acceptance in a young boy. This book was based on a true story which makes it that much more enduring, loved it.
