I was raised by a mother who often said to me, “If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t, you are absolutely right!” This is the message I wanted to convey when I began to write Hopolito. I chose to tell the story through the eyes and heart of a puppy, who was born with a “catch” in his hind legs, and so he hopped, he couldn’t walk or run or scamper like his brothers, try as he would.
His story unfolds when he encounters a rabbit named Rummy, who oddly enough can run but not hop! They both long for what the other has and set out to find the Woodsy Spirit who Rummy claims can help them make the exchange between the two of them. Their search brings them closer together as friends. A friendship that allows them to realize that their challenges are their greatest gifts.
