Ike, Mrs. LaRue’s dog, has an active imagination that makes for more interesting letters to his owner than reality. Sent to obedience school, Ike feels he is unjustly imprisoned and so he escapes. Colourful illustrations show what’s really happening, while the monochrome illustrations depict Ike’s spin on the situation and how he recounts events to Mrs. LaRue in his letters.
