About this title


A young girl describes her experiences caring for her orphaned puppy Trip.

From Publishers Weekly:

Like Judith Hendershot's In Coal Country, Ray's long picture book deals sensitively with miners and their families; this time the narration is in a thick West Virginia hill-country dialect. Allie's father finds an orphaned dog that Allie names "Trip for his trippin'-up feet." When the dog disappears, she is inconsolable. She says, "When I tell Gramma what the trouble be, she say, 'Frettin' won't do no good, darlin'. You got to try to take your mind off Trip.' But I can't. I get to cryin' for missin' him so much." After some false starts, Allie finally finds Trip at a nearby home where another little girl has made Trip her own. Allie sympathizes and offers to let the girl visit Trip. She returns home saying, "I hold so tight to Trip. I don't never want to let him go." The emotional story is nicely supported by Ray's evocative black-and-white pencil drawings. Ages 7-11.
