A dog laments his fate at obedience school through a series of hilarious letters home. When Ike LaRue is imprisoned at the Igor Brotweiler Canine Academy, he tries everything to get sent home -- from weepy letters to his owner to illness. In reality, Brotweiler is more like camp than prison, but still, Ike's not cut out for life without Mrs. LaRue. Finally, he runs away only to find himself back in Snort City -- just in time to save Mrs. LaRue's life. This classic picture book by How Do Dinosaurs...? illustrator Mark Teague is now available as a trade paperback!
