    Dear Mrs. LaRue

    by Mark Teague

    Teague is at the top of his fetching form in this madcap comedy. Locked up at a Canine Academy, Ike tries everything to get sent home—weepy letters to his owner, even illness. In reality, the Academy is more like camp than prison, but Ike's not cut out for life without Mrs. Larue and his creature comforts.

About This Book

Through a series of hilarious letters home, Ike tries everything to get released from obedience school. Forget that the Igor Brotweiler Canine Academy is like a spa or a very fancy sleep-away camp, Ike just can't adapt. Not until the madcap climax, involving a daring rescue with tricks learned at school, does Ike work his way back into Mrs. LaRue's good graces and move back home.

Dynamic split-screen visuals contrast the colorful real world of Brotweiler with the black-and-white one in Ike's imagination, which is filled with all the melodramatic horror of a B-movie. Dog lovers, Teague lovers, and humor lovers alike will agree that Dear Mrs. LaRue is Mark's most fetching book to date.
