Dear Mrs. LaRue: Letters from Obedience School by Mark Teague

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 camp than prison, but still, Ike is not cut out for life without 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.

I asked our children's librarian if she had any more "sarcastic books full of big words, like the Ike Larue series", but oddly enough they don't categorize anything under "sarcasm" at the library. They should. Ike Larue is a sly, sarcastic, very melodramatic and hilarious dog, and we love him! He spins wild tale after wild tale about his misadventures and captures your heart. In this book, Ike is sent to obedience school and writes home with a harrowing story of hard discipline, prison food and mistreatment, eventually leading to his escape and difficult travels home. The second set of illustrations hints that perhaps the ritzy country club school was not quite as bad as Ike would have us believe. Brilliant writing pulls no punches and will greatly increase any child's vocabulary as the whole family reads this book over and over again. Mrs. Larue is lucky to have him, and you should have him too.

This book is about a dog who goes to prison and he learns stuff about school,like math, reading & science. He also learned to eat with his paws. The dog he was so good that he got out of jail and ate his favorite food,chicken pie. I really liked this book because it was funny. I would recommend it to funny kids.

The story is amazing and funny with black and white and color pictures. The story is about a dramatic dog who wrote notes to his owner from obedience school. There are creative pictures and characters, especially the last picture. The pictures looked so interesting that we would like to go there. The author has a good imagination. We really liked reading this story in class.

Ike is one very funny dog. His antics at obedience school are the dreams of every domesticated animal. Three cheers for Ike and his tenacity. What a relief it was when he arrived home just in time to save dear, old Mrs. LaRue! He's a GOOD DOG!

Ike is hysterical. Even my 12 year old nephew found it very funny and memorable. It's inventive and entertaining. If your child doesn't read well yet, this book will make your job easier since the adults in my family loved reading it over and over. If you have a dog, you'll probably see him in the story.
