Very sweet, uplifting book!  May 6, 2008
Last weekend, I read this book to my three grandsons and they loved it! It is a fun, exciting, and touching book to read--especially if you read each part with plenty of emotion! Enjoy!
 
Piper  Oct 16, 2007
I purchased this book for my granddaughter's 1st birthday. Her name is Piper and I thought this is something she can have for a long time. I was really pleased with the book and she loves having her parents read it to her even though she is not old enough yet to know it is actually her name.
 
gentle and heartwarming story about the importance of being true to oneself.  Jun 10, 2007
Award-winning author and illustrator Emma Chichester Clark presents Piper, a picturebook about a gentle black dog taught by his mother to help others in trouble. Yet when his grim new master treats him badly for refusing to chase away rabbits, Piper runs away and searches the big city for a place where he can be appreciated. Piper rescues an old lady from being run over by a car, triggering a city-wide search to find the heroic and compassionate canine. A gentle and heartwarming story about the importance of being true to oneself.
 
Treating animals with kindness  May 8, 2007
Piper is taught by his mother to always obey his master, look both ways when crossing the road, and always help those in danger. But when Piper is given away to a cruel master who beats and ties him up without any food, he decides to run away.

This story is a little dark to begin with, but it has a happy ending. It is a good story to teach the importance of treating animals with kindness.
 
Very Sweet Story  Apr 14, 2007
A pleasurable read, nice illustrations, a kind and lovable dog - adventure and happy ending - What else could you ask for in a children's book? We loved it!
