Author(s): Margaret Wild
When the puppy came to live with Harry and Dad, he was as jumpy as a grasshopper. So that's what Harry called him, Hopper. One day, Harry comes home from school and his dog isn't there to greet him. Harry will never know the feel or the smell of Hopper again. But love is strong and Hopper will stay with Harry as long as he needs him.
