it was amazing
Read in September, 2011

Wallace Wallace, accidental football hero, is on detention because his teacher doesn't like his review of "Old Shep, My Pal." Detention happens to take place during play rehearsals for a play based on the very same book, because the teacher is also the director of the play. Wallace Wallace, who cannot tell a lie, starts making suggestions to improve the play. Meanwhile, someone is trying to sabotage the play, and a lot of people think it's Wallace Wallace.

Wallace Wallace notes early in the book "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" (p. 5). So true.

I especially appreciate that this book doesn't end the way Andrew Clements' books end, with the kids learning to ignore injustice to make school life easier. In this book, the teacher even learns a lesson!
