Read full description of the books:
The story, Trupp, authored and illustrated by Janell Cannon is a beautifully written and illustrated story about finding true friendship. After I read Crickwing by Janell Cannon, I became interested in this author and illustrator. Her books seem to have underlying social issues, which is valuable to all readers.
Trupp is a fictional character that looks like a hybrid between a cat and a polar bear. This is a tale about Trupp wanting to leave home to discover the outside world and find new adventures. On the way to his new adventure, he becomes friend with a clever raven. The two of them discover the city and blend in with humans after the raven helps Trupp find a hilarious disguise. The story takes a meaningful turn when the two characters meet a homeless woman. The homeless woman teaches Trupp and the raven about friendship and companionship on a much deeper level.
This would be an excellent story for a read aloud with elementary level students. The fictional specie to which Trupp belongs is alluring and captivating. The students will surely want to know more about Trupp after seeing what he looks like. I think it would be creative to read this book as a read aloud and then have each student create their own fictional character. The teacher might help by having visual representations of various animals and have students pick two to three animals. Then, the students could hybridize those animals and create a fictional character that they can then write stories about. Also, because this book includes the universal theme of friendship, the student will surely be able to draw many personal connections to this story. The teacher could start many meaningful discussions about friendship crossing many sorts of barriers, and not judging others by the way they appear. For example, Trupp found a most valuable friendship with a homeless woman because he chose not to place judgment on her.
