Ike LaRue–the devilish dog hero of Mark Teague’s Book Sense Book of the Year, 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 now finds himself in jail–wrongly accused (of course!) of terrorizing the Hibbins’ cats & stealing their cat treats. Once again, he pleads his case to Mrs LaRue, who’s vacationing in France, but to no avail. When a string of canary burglaries stalls the Snort City Police force’s investigation–and reveals their crime-solving ineptitude–Ike flees custody and takes matters into his own paws. Expect more mad-cap comedy in Ike’s daring escapades (real and imagined), as well as ingenious split-screen visuals from the incomparable Mark Teague.
