Dear Mrs. Larue: Letters from Obedience Schoolby Mark Teague
Synopses & Reviews
A beguiling dog laments his fate at obedience school through a series of hilarious letters home--by the best-selling illustrator of HOW DO DINOSAURS SAY GOOD NIGHT?
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 w/o Mrs. Larue and his creature comforts. Finally, he runs away only to find himself back in Snort City--just in time to save Mrs. Larue's life.Teague is at the top of his fetching form in this madcap comedy where the real world of Brotweiler and the one Ike imagines are brilliantly depicted thru split-screen visuals, the former in color and the latter in b&w.
Teague is at the top of his fetching form in this madcap comedy where the real world of Brotweiler Canine Academy and the one poor imprisoned Ike LaRue imagines are depicted side-by-side. Full color.
Another hilarious companion to I Wanna Iguana.
Alex is not happy about being sent to his grandparents retirement community while his parents go on a fabulous vacation. What could be worse than tagging along to Grandmas boring bridge game or enduring the sight of Grandpas dentures?
But as the week goes on, Alexs desperate emails to his parents turn into stories about ice cream before dinner and stickball with Grandpa. Before he knows it, Alex has made a surprising discovery: grandparents are way cooler than he thought!
Masterfully balancing hilarity and heart, Karen Kaufman Orloff and Dave Catrow deliver a story sure to entertain kids and grandparents everywhere.
In the vein of Eloise and Marley, here's an adorable tale of two well-intentioned rule breakers who show each other how friends deserve to be treated
Bella knows her family's rules by heart, but she much prefers her own: Candy for breakfast, no hair-washing, and no such thing as bedtime. And then . . . Bella the wild child gets a new pet! At first, Bella and Puppy are the very best of friends. But when it turns out that Puppy doesn't like the family rules either (including the rule not to gnaw off Bella's teddy bear's arm), well...it's time for a little puppy training. And Bella might just learn a thing or two herself!
