No More Dead Dogs
Gordon Korman, by the way, is a great author for boys who like humor and action.He really knows how to put it down and move it along for them. In this one, Wallace Wallace, town football hero by sheer accident and no talent, has decided to put his foot down.He has just read Old Shep, My Pal, (not a real book by the way) and once again, the hero, a dog, has not lived to see the end of the book.Wallace has decided NO MORE DEAD DOGS.He's had it with Old Yeller, Sounder, Where the Red Fern Grows.So in his assignment to write a book report, he pretty much spells it out.He hated the book.That's it. The teacher says no way.Write more.Wallace Wallace says that's it.Read my lips. The teacher says DETENTION.So, Wallace Wallace heads to detention and by merest chance, finds himself stuck watching the rehearsals of the school play, day afterday and what play is that you ask?Well, try a dramatization of Old Shep, My Pal.Uh huh!Wallace Wallace becomes a creative advisor to the drama department, and the hilarity ensues.
