About This Book
Showoff: someone who is given to bragging, having a swelled head, boasting, swaggering, knowing it all . . .
In this engaging, laugh-packed read, Griffin Bing and the Swindle gang are back in action, and things are really going to the dogs!
Griffin has never been a huge fan of Savannah's vicious Doberman, Luthor. Still, he thinks it's unusual when Luthor goes crazy at a mall dog show and injures a champion beagle. And he doesn't think it's fair that the beagle's owner is suing Savannah's parents, who insist on sending Luthor to the pound. So Griffin comes up with a plan to earn enough money to settle the lawsuit. All he and his friends have to do is spring Luthor from the pound, bring a legendary dog handler out of retirement, and train the Doberman to win at the big national dog show. How hard can it be?
Gordon Korman has been making readers laugh out loud ever since he published his first book, This Can't Be Happening at Macdonald Hall, at the age of 14. His many fans are sure to love his funny, crowd-pleasing novels about Griffin Bing and his misfit pals.
