Throwback Friday: No More Dead Dogs by Gordon Korman




This summer we'll be highlighting some of our older faves that you might have missed. Lisa has one to give your summer a little pick-me-up:


No More Dead Dogs by Gordon Korman

Have you ever noticed that too many dog characters in books end up dead? What is that about?!?!  

When eighth-grader Wallace Wallace (yes, that’s his name, not a typo) refuses to lie and fawn over "Old Shep, My Pal," one of his English teacher’s favorite books, there are serious consequences. Instead of spending time on the football field where he’s a star, Wallace is given detention in the auditorium where the teacher is directing a play based on the controversial book. Wallace can’t sit in silence, and before you know it his hilarious but unwelcome suggestions change the production from a tragedy into a rock musical with no dead dogs! Laughs, romance, explosions and even mystery are guaranteed.

If you’re looking for a funny summer read with a promise of no canine death, look no further!
