    Detective Larue: Letters from the Investigation

    by Mark Teague and Mark Teague

    Ike LaRue -- the devilish dog hero of Mark Teague's runaway hit, Dear Mrs. LaRue -- goes from obedience school dropout to shrewd sleuth in this exceedingly funny sequel!

    As if obedience school wasn't bad enough, Ike is now in prison! The Hibbins' cats are missing, and Ike is being blamed. With Mrs. LaRue vacationing in France, and the Snort City Police Department stalled by a string of canary burglaries, he must take matters into his own paws and mount an investigation to prove his innocence. Will Ike be able to solve the crime and preserve his spotless reputation?

    Expect more madcap comedy in Ike's daring escapades (both real and imagined), as well as ingenious split-screen visuals from the incomparable Mark Teague.

    Dear Mrs. LaRue: Letters from Obedience School

    by Mark Teague

    When Ike Larue is "imprisoned" at the Igor Brotweiler Canine Academy, he tries everything to get sent home—weepy letters to his owner, even illness. In reality, Brotweiler is more like camp than prison, but still, Ike's not cut out for life without Mrs. Larue & his creature comforts. Finally, he runs away only to find himself back in Snort City—just in time to save Mrs. Larue's life.

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.
