Read full description of the books:
”I wasn’t surprised,” I said. “I knew Old Shep was going to die before I started page one.”
”Don’t be ridiculous,“ the teacher snapped. “How?”
I shrugged. “Because the dog always dies. Go to the library and pick out a book with an award sticker and a dog on the cover. Trust me, that dog is going down.”
And from there, the woes of Wallace Wallace spiral ever downward. Now Wallace Wallace (WW going forward and not to be confused with Humbert Humbert, who had his own obsessive behaviors) is one compelled to truth telling, which isn’t bad of itself, but he’s also prone to hyperbole, which creates its own problems.
After having thus insulted his teacher, whose favorite book as a child (and ever after) was something called Old Shep, My Pal, is given detention—detention in this case involves reporting to the school auditorium every day until he revises an unacceptable book report on OS,MP. It further involves sitting through rehearsals for the school production of OS,MP conducted by the teacher mentioned above and who has also adapted the novel into a play. Poor WW. Additionally, it means WW will miss football practice until the revised paper is completed, causing great consternation among the team who consider him responsible for the big win the previous season and cannot imagine winning again without his presence on the field. WW knows he’s no hero. His ‘ex-best friend’ (who really is a good football player) knows he’s no hero. The coach also knows, but everyone else, everyone, seems to think he matters in the ways of which he knows better.
What follows, among other things, are accusations, sabotage, indignation, resentment, etc.—all those things that keep the lives of young people so fraught with stress, but told with humor, without language issues, and a genuine good feeling toward the audience.
A good choice for reluctant readers, 5th-8th grade, that won’t offend parents while still entertaining young readers. It’s fun.
I read this one years ago and reread it over the holidays. Actually, it was the first book finished this year, but being vain (apparently, not too vain to review a kid’s book) I didn’t want it to be the first reviewed book after my GR hiatus. Don’t tell anyone, please.
