Publisher Comments:

andlt;Bandgt;A New Dog in Townandlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Tippy Lemmey is no ordinary dog. Not only is he the only dog Leandra, Paul, and Jeannie have ever met with a first and a last name, he's a living, breathing monster! When they ride their bikes, he chases them, snapping at their heels. When they run, he runs. If they cross the street, he follows. There's no getting away from him — over him or under him. He's their number one enemy. andlt;BRandgt; Leandra, Paul, and Jeannie try to come up with a plan to stop Tippy Lemmey, but nothing works. But then Tippy does something totally unexpected, and the kids realize that maybe he's not their enemy after all.

Synopsis:

It's 1951, and America is fighting a war in Korea. Back home in Templeton, Tennessee, Leanne, Paul, and Jeannie are fighting a war of their own against Tippy Lemmey, the only dog they've ever met with both a first and a last name. When they ride their bikes, he chases them. When they run, he runs. There's no getting away from him.

But when Tippy Lemmey is in trouble, Leanne, Paul, and Jeannie are the only ones who can help him. The kids are faced with a tough decision — whether or not they should help their sworn enemy. But they can't turn their backs on the dog — and later, Tippy returns the favor.
