About This Book
Free Teaching Resource: LaRue for Mayor Compare Contrast Worksheet
* "The writing is as sharp and satiric as ever." — Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Kids will get a kick out of LaRue's unrepentant mischief, while adults will chuckle over nods to real-world presidential campaigns." —Booklist
"...a tale for dog lovers of every breed..." — Kirkus Reviews
Ike finds his civil liberties at risk when Hugo Bugwort, the hard line mayoral candidate, promises to crack down on free-roaming, fun-loving dogs. As the anti-dog rhetoric escalates, Ike is compelled to join the political fray and run for mayor himself.
Brilliantly told through letters to Mrs. LaRue and local newspaper accounts, Mark Teague delivers another excellent execution of split-screen visuals and uproarious escapades of the unforgettable Ike.
