Dear Mrs. LaRue: Letters from Obedience School
Mark Teague
Poor Ike! Sent to dog obedience school by his owner, he begins a letter-writing campaign to tell of his plight and beg to come home. His letters describe the school and staff, his "crimes," and his plans for escape. But, as the hilarious illustrations show, Ike has a flair for stretching the truth a bit, and readers will howl with delight at this cat-chasing, chicken-pie-eating canine's tale!
